Uttar Pradesh's Mayawati is India's richest chief minister.

With declared assets of Rs 87.27 crore, the BSP supremo is richer than
all other nine chief ministers in the top 10 list put together,
according to data released by the NGO Association for Democratic
Reforms. The total declared assets of the other nine chief ministers
are worth Rs 79.5 crore.

The high value of Mayawati's assets is primarily because she owns most
of them in Delhi, her birthplace. She has a commercial centre in Okhla
and plots worth Rs 54 crore in the posh Sardar Patel Marg.

She also owns jewellery worth Rs 90 lakh.

Coming second is Tamil Nadu CM J Jayalalithaa, whose declared assets
account for R51 crore. She claims her assets have not increased in the
last five years.

None of the other chief ministers on the list has assets more than R10
crore. For Andhra Pradesh CM Kiran Kumar Reddy they are Rs 8.1 crore,
Odisha CM Naveen Patnaik Rs 4.7 crore, Haryana CM Bhupinder Singh
Hooda Rs 3.74 crore, Jammu and Kashmir CM Omar Abdullah Rs 2 crore,
Gujarat CM Narendra Modi R1.78 crore and Delhi CM Sheila Dikshit Rs
1.9 crore.

Among the chief ministers of the poll-bound states, Punjab's Parkash
Singh Badal comes second, after Mayawati, with declared assets worth
Rs 6.76 crore. However, deputy chief minister and SAD president
Sukhbir Badal is richer with Rs 74 crore. Punjab Congress president
and former CM Amarinder Singh has Rs 44.76 crore.

Manipur CM Okram Ibobi Singh comes last with Rs 6 lakh.

Uttarakhand CM BC Khanduri has Rs 1.69 crore and Goa CM Digambar Kamat
has declared assets of Rs 3.23 crore.
