Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Mayawati has assets worth a whopping Rs 87.27 crore, according to the National Election Watch, which has analysed the affidavits filed by the chief ministers of the five poll-bound states.

According to the organisation, Manipur Chief Minister Okram Ibobi Singh has assets worth only Rs 6.09 lakh.

Parkash Singh Badal, chief minister of Punjab, has a criminal case registered against him. He faces charges of cheating, forgery and criminal conspiracy. The other CMs are not facing any criminal charges.

Let us take a look at some of the other information obtained by the National Election Watch:

Punjab Chief Minister Parkash Singh Badal: He faces charges of criminal conspiracy, cheating and dishonestly inducing delivery of property, forgery of valuable security, will, forgery for purpose of cheating, using as genuine a forged document or electronic record.

He owns moveable assets worth Rs 2,54,63,551 and immoveable assets worth Rs 6,66,02,320.

Budget performance: Revenue expenditure increased in 2009-10 by 11.6 per cent. The increase was mainly due to increase under general education, pension, assignment to local bodies and Panchayati Raj Institutions and roads and bridges. Punjab has faced a revenue deficit since 2007-08 since revenue growth has failed to surpass revenue expenditure. Punjab has the fifth highest fiscal deficit of all States which is 3.6 per cent of its Gross State Domestic Product.
