The actor cum politician, the Samajwadi party MP- Jaya Bachchan could possibly be the richest MP of Rajya Sabha with assets declared of worth Rs.1000 crore.
Jaya, the wife of megastar Amitabh Bachchan had recently filed her nomination for the Rajya Sabha polls as a SP candidate from Uttar Pradesh.
This declaration of assets worth Rs.1000 crore could make Jaya the richest MP leaving behind the former BJP MP Ravindra Kishore Sinha, who had declared assets of Rs.800 crore in 2014 when he stepped in Rajya Sabha.
The declaration made by the couple this year reflects that their wealth has been more than double from around 500 crore in 2012 to 1000+ crore in 2018.
The last time when she had filed nominations in 2012 she had declared total assets worth 493 crore which comprised movable assets of 343 crores and immovable assets of 152 crores.
This leap of 500 crores plus in 6 years could possibly make her the richest MP of Rajya Sabha.
Jaya Bachchan stepped into politics in 2004 as a Rajya Sabha MP from the Samajwadi party. Then she was twice re-elected in 2006 and 2012.

Apart from having residential properties in Bhopal, Pune, Ahmedabad, Gandhinagar and Noida in India they do have a residential property in Brignogan Plage in France of 3175 sq. km.
