The Association for Democratic Reforms maintains a detailed account of Indian political leaders' wealth, educational qualifications and criminal cases. The 'Myneta.info' website has all the details along with how much money the concerned leader has spent in which sector for the vote.
A request was made in the Calcutta High Court that the Enforcement Directorate (ED) should investigate how the properties of 19 TMC leaders and ministers of Bengal are increasing. The High Court ordered to include the ED in that case on Monday. Lawyer Shamim Ahmed made this plea in the division bench of High Court Chief Justice Prakash Srivastava and Justice Rajarshi Bharadwaj. In the High Court, he gave a list of 19 leaders-ministers along with their movable and immovable assets and said that from 2011 to 2016, the assets of these leaders-ministers have increased a lot. All those whose names have been mentioned, contested in 2011 and 2016 assembly elections.
