Actress-turned-politician Jaya Bachchan has declared movable and immovable assets worth Rs 493 crore in her affidavit to the Election Commission (EC).
The Samajwadi Party has once again nominated Bachchan overlooking Rajya Sabha MP Naresh Agrawal, who immediately quit the party and joined rival BJP. Jaya Bachchan is Samajwadi Party's representative from Uttar Pradesh and according to her filing, the couple's collective wealth amounts to ₹1,000 crore. She is pro-active in Parliament, takes her files to Rajya Sabha like a child taking a slate to school, and stays inside the House till the final gong sounds. What's noteworthy is her declaration: she announced assets worth Rs. 1,000cr, and could well be India's richest MP.
