Former Union minister Shashi Tharoor has informed the Kerala High Court he had not acquired any assets of his late wife Sunanda Pushkar either individually or jointly with her son or anybody else as her movable and immovable assets are not yet “ascertainable or estimable”.

In a statement filed in the court on a petition seeking setting aside of his election to Lok Sabha for alleged non-disclosure of details of properties inherited from his late wife in his poll affidavit, the Congress MP stated it was “absolutely false” that he had inherited the substantial portion of his wife’s wealth by virtue of the provisions of the Hindu Succession Act as she was a Canadian citizen.

He said that at the time of filing nomination papers from Thiruvananthapuram, he had not acquired any assets— movable or immovable of his late wife Sunanda, either individually or jointly with her son or any other relative.

“The movable and immovable assets of late Sunanda are not yet ascertainable or estimable and the right of succession to her estate is still uncertain,” he said in the statement filed on a petition from Suresh Kumar.
