Even if you despair at times, do remember that your votes are the most valuable in this world! The minute you give it away to any candidate, voila their assets are tripled, quadrupled or whatever!
The latest gem of the lot is Mayawati. Not only did she fill her state with statues of herself as well as elephants but we are also told that :
In the last two years, her assets have shot up by 24 crores. So how much is Mayawati worth exactly? 111 crores.
Behenji, as the former chief minister is known, has said she has 380 carats of diamonds, and one kilogram of gold. Together, these are worth just under a crore. Her silver dinner set, which weighs nearly 20 kgs, is worth 9 lakhs.
Her immovable assets - largely property - add upto 96 crores. This includes two shops in Delhi's Connaught Place, a home worth 62 crores on Sardar Patel Marg, one of Delhi's most sought-after neighbourhoods, and a home in Lucknow worth 15 crores.
In May 2010, her assets were worth 87 crores
