An appeals court acquitted the powerful politician in southern India of corruption charges earlier this month, clearing the way for her to return to public office. She was forced to step down as the highest elected official in Tamil Nadu after a Bangalore court last September convicted her of possessing wealth disproportionate to her income and sentenced her to four years in prison.

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalithaa owns movable and immovable property worth over Rs 113.73 crore. This was disclosed through the affidavit she filed along with her nomination in the upcoming Assembly elections. When she last contested the election it was more than 117 cr.

However, over a five-year period, Ms Jayalalithaa’s asset value has seen a five-fold growth.

Jayalalitha’s arch rival and DMK supremo Karunanidhi has declared assets worth Rs 63 crore. This includes assets owned by his two wives. Though DMK was in opposition, party chief’s asset increased by about 54 percent in five years than the assets he declared for the 2011 elections.

Jayalalithaa is contesting from RK Nagar constituency while the DMK chief is contesting from Tiruvarur.

Jayalalithaa owns movable assets worth Rs 41.63 crore and immovable assets Rs 72.09 crore.

She said that as gold jewellery and other items weighing 21,280.300 grams have been seized by investigators and is deposited in the Karnataka treasury possession. Their exact value could not be ascertained, the incumbent chief minister stated in her affidavit.

Jayalalithaa’s total liabilities are around Rs 2.04 crore.

On the other hand, DMK leader M Karunanidhi who is contesting from Tiruvarur constituency, has declared assets worth around Rs 63 crore – including assets owned by his two wives – which is an increase of about 54 per cent as compared to asset value declared by him for the 2011 Assembly elections.
