Chief minister Narendra Modi’s assets have more than tripled since 2007, an affidavit filed by the BJP leader along with his nomination for the upcoming election, shows.
Modi had declared total assets worth Rs42.55 lakh in the affidavit filed along with his nomination for the 2007 assembly elections. The value of his assets has gone up to Rs1.33 crore in 2012, a rise of 212%.
The CM had deposits of Rs8.55 lakh in banks, and another Rs3.39 lakh in NSS in 2007. His affidavit says he now has deposits of Rs4.65 lakh in banks, and FDs of Rs22.59 lakh. He has savings of Rs4 lakh in postal deposits, and has also invested Rs20,000 in infrastructure bonds.
However, there are a few discrepancies. His 2007 affidavit said he has three gold rings, weighing approximately 45 gram. His 2012 affidavits states he has four gold rings, but their weight mentioned is unchanged at 45 gram.
