When it comes to growth of assets, ministers outstrip other legislators

Written By Unknown on Sabtu, 27 September 2014 | 22.23

The assets of all outgoing MLAs rose from 2009 to 2014, but the assets of the ministers in the outgoing government grew more steeply, their affidavits show.

On Friday, the penultimate day of filing nominations, 130 candidates completed the procedure in Mumbai. In the state, more than 2,600 contenders filed their nomination papers along with affidavits. Prominent among these were Ajit Pawar, Varsha Gaikwad, Suresh Shetty, Sachin Ahir, Eknath Khadse, Pankaja Munde, R R Patil, Vinod Ghosalkar and Ravindra Waikar.

Consistent with the trend seen in the nominations filed on Thursday, most legislators' assets grew twofold or threefold. But the increase was steeper in ministers' cases.

Former excise minister Ganesh Naik's affidavit put the worth of his and his wife's total assets at about Rs 16 crore, nearly five times more than the Rs 3.4 crore assets his 2009 affidavit listed. In former deputy CM Ajit Pawar's case, the value of assets nearly quadrupled. In his latest affidavit, the assets add up to a total of about Rs 40 crore; in 2009, the sum was about Rs 11 crore. Ex-minister Jitendra Awhad has this time shown assets worth Rs 10.3 crore—a tenfold rise from 2009, when he valued his assets at Rs 1.2 crore.

Vivek Gilani of MumbaiVotes, a not-for-profit group that analyses data filed by public representatives, said state legislators and parliamentarians are encouraged to start own businesses so that they can be partners in the nation's growth. "But if their incomes and assets are rising disproportionately to their known sources of income and at a rate higher than the growth rate of the national per capita income, then there should be an analysis to find out the sources. I think the election commission or the income-tax department should analyse such data," he said.

Meanwhile, all major parties are giving assembly election tickets to some of their BMC councillors. Shiv Sena is fielding Sunil Prabhu, who was Mumbai's mayor till recently. BJP is putting up as its candidates Dilip Patel and Ram Barot (both former deputy mayors), Ujwala Modak (chairperson of the improvements committee), Manisha Chaudhari and Krishna Parkar.

Congress is giving tickets to Sheetal Mhatre, Pravin Chheda and Manoj Jamsutkar. In the assembly race will also be NCP corporator Chandan Sharma and MNS councillors Eshwar Tyade and Bhalchandra Ambure.
