According to the affidavit, Dinakaran's wife owns movable assets worth around Rs 6.87 crore and immovable asset worth around Rs 2.4 crore. She owes banks around Rs 5.42 crore.

On the other hand, DMK candidate N. Marudhu Ganesh has declared that he owns movable assets worth around Rs 2.57 lakh and immovable assets worth around Rs 10 lakh. His wife owns movable assets worth around Rs 7.08 lakh.
