New Delhi, Feb 2 (IANS) Congress MP Adhir Ranjan Choudhary’s furniture and other belongings were moved out of his Type 8 ministerial bungalow on Tuesday. The former minister saw political vendetta behind the move.
Officials of the directorate of estates under the urban development ministry reached Choudhary’s residence at 14, New Moti Bagh and snapped power and water connections, besides moving out the belongings.
According to the officials, the Lok Sabha member from West Bengal was allotted a Type 7 bungalow on Humayun Road and was given sufficient time to vacate the ministerial bungalow, which was given to him when he was a minister in the UPA government.
Despite several reminders, he, however, did not vacate the bungalow.
“I got a stay from court, even then they (the officials) ransacked my bungalow and disconnected water and electricity supply. This is nothing but a political vendetta against the opposition by the central government,” Choudhary told IANS.
He said he did not receive any notice from the government to vacate the bungalow.
