Chennai, July 30: The Tamil Nadu government has listed 4 kilograms of gold, 610 kgs of silver, 8,736 books, 38 air conditioners, 10,438 dress materials as properties of former chief minister, J Jayalalithaa.
The state is in the process of acquiring the assets of Jayalalithaa at her three storey home, Veda Nilayam at Poes Garden.

The process is being undertaken after an ordinance was promulgated in May to facilitate its temporary possession to convert the residence of Jayalalithaa into a museum. The government had deposited Rs 67.9 crore in the civil court on July 25 for acquiring Veda Nilayam.
