Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi has vacated the bungalow allotted to her by the central government in Lodhi estate of Luyten’s zone on Thursday.
News agency ANI reported, “The Congress general secretary had earlier this month cleared her pending dues after the government announced it has cancelled the accommodation at 35, Lodhi Estate,” adding, “The government order had said that Gandhi is no longer protected by the Special Protection Group (SPG) and hence not eligible anymore”.
The directorate of estate department of the ministry of housing and urban affairs had issued a notice to her on July 1 to vacate her house within a month. The bungalow was allotted to her in 1997.
“Any stay beyond 01.08.2020 will attract damage charges/penal rent as per rules,” the department stated in the order.
The same bungalow has been allotted to Bharatiya Janata Party MP and party spokesperson Anil Baluni.
