Patna High Court on Monday rejected the petition submitted by the Bihar Legislative Assembly leader of opposition, Tejashwi Yadav regarding the bungalow dispute. Chief Justice A P Shah kept the decision made earlier secure.
The state government had asked Tejashwi Yadav to vacate his government bungalow situated at 5 Dashratan Marg after he was no more the Deputy Chief Minister of Bihar. The Bihar government’s housing department had sent in a notice but the RJD workers protested against it as it was sent in Yadav’s absence.
Interacting with media about the earlier order, the RJD leader had pointed towards Sushil Modi’s desperation of shifting in this bungalow.
Yadav had said, “Why is he so desperate to get me ousted from the bungalow? Is he standing on the road? Is he facing problems in performing his duties from the current residence which he is living?”
Yadav was allotted the bungalow next in 2015 after he was made the Deputy CM, but later the Chief Minister Nitish Kumar broke away with the alliance and joined NDA, forming the government again and Sushil Modi was given the Deputy portfolio this time.
Sushil Modi after being appointed as Nitish’s deputy is residing at 1, Polo Road, which is in the vicinity of a 1km from the CM’s residence.
