In our country, more money is spent on ministers than welfare of the state. However, in a shocking revelation, a chief minister of a state in India is poorer than his own son and deputy.
Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar is poorer than his son. According to the assets details declared by the minister himself, his son Nishant is four times richer than him.
Nitish assets included cash, bank deposits, a Ford car, cows and calves, an exercise bicycle, a flat in Dwarka (Delhi) worth Rs 56 lakh. But his son Nishant’s total assets are worth Rs 2.36 crore.
Even Nitish Kumar’s deputy Tejaswi Prasad Yadav is richer than him.
Tejashwi Yadav, who is the younger son of Lalu Prasad and former CM Rabri Devi, has a majority of plots in Danapur and Phulwarisharif locality of the greater Patna. He also owns a plot in Gardanibagh muhalla in Patna.
His elder brother, Tej Pratap Yadav, who is also state’s health minister has a car worth Rs 29 lakh, a motorcycle (Rs 15 lakh) and deposits in bank accounts of about Rs 3 lakh, and some plots of land in Danapur and Phulwarisharif localities.
In Bihar, the CM and his cabinet ministers declare their assets on the first day of each year since 2010.
