Rahul Gandhi likely to vacate govt accommodation on Saturday

New Delhi: A day after the sessions court in Surat dismissed Rahul Gandhi’s plea seeking suspension of his conviction in the defamation case that led to his disqualification from Parliament, reports have claimed that the Congress leader has decided to vacate his official bungalow in Delhi’s Tughlaq Lane on Saturday morning.

The former Congress president has been living at Tughlaq lane since 2005

However, an official confirmation on the same is awaited. For the unversed, April 22, was the deadline set by the Lok Sabha housing panel for Gandhi to vacate his government-allotted bungalow.

The former Congress president has been living at Tughlaq lane since 2005. However, responding to the eviction notice which was served to him on March 27, Rahul had said, “As an elected Member of the Lok Sabha over the last 4 terms, it is the mandate of the people to which I owe the happy memories of my time spent there. Without prejudice to my rights, I will, of course, abide by the details contained in your letter.”

As per a rule, a disqualified MP isn’t entitled to a government accommodation and is given a 30-day period to vacate the official residence. Gandhi was found guilty and sentenced to two years in jail by a Surat court in a 2019 defamation case.
