The Housing Committee of Lok Sabha has sent Congress leader Rahul Gandhi a notice to vacate the government bungalow allotted to him, sources said, days after his disqualification as MP following a Surat court’s verdict in a criminal defamation case. They claim Rahul Gandhi has been asked to vacate 12 Tughlaq Lane in New Delhi.
According to the sources, Rahul Gandhi has been given 30 days to vacate the premises in order to avoid eviction. Following Rahul Gandhi’s disqualification, Congress workers protested in various parts of the country.
The party has slammed the Modi government on the issue, pledging to fight it both legally and politically. The court decision, issued last week, was related to Rahul Gandhi’s Modi surname remarks made during an election rally in Karnataka in April 2019. Gandhi’s bail was approved on a surety basis, and the sentence was suspended for 30 days to allow him to appeal to higher courts.
