Nafisa Ali, the Samajwadi Party's nominee for the Lucknow seat, is wealthier than Congress president Sonia Gandhi and her MP son Rahul Gandhi put together, according to her affidavit filed here Wednesday along with the nomination papers.
As per the affidavit, Nafisa Ali and her husband, an ex-army colonel, together own assets of about Rs 50 million (Rs 5 crores), as against Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi's combined worth of less than Rs 40 million (Rs 4 crores).
However, like the mother-son duo, the former actress and social activist does not own a vehicle, though her husband owns three cars worth about Rs 2 million.
While Nafisa and her husband hold Rs 112,000 in cash, they have about Rs 6.4 million in fixed deposits and about Rs 8 million in shares.
They also hold life insurance policies worth about Rs 500,000, jewellery worth about Rs 1.5 million, paintings and antique furniture valued at Rs 800,000, besides a revolver worth Rs 45,000.
While neither of them own any agricultural land or commercial plot of land, Nafisa Ali owns a house worth about Rs 1.4 million in Nainital. A house in Delhi's upscale Defence Colony in the name of her husband is valued at Rs 20 million and a flat in Gurgaon at Rs 5.2 million.
