It is reported that the late Ram Vilas Paswan’s son, Lok Sabha MP Chirag Paswan, is being evicted from the bungalow where his father once lived, according to reliable sources. The belongings of Chirag Paswan are being removed from 12 Janpath Road by a government team.
Sonia Gandhi’s residence is located just two doors down the road from the Union ministers’ residence at 12 Janpath Road. Following the death of Ram Vilas Paswan, Chirag Paswan was asked to vacate the premises nearly a year after his father.
Earlier in October 2020, the former food minister in Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s cabinet passed away, only a few days after undergoing heart surgery.
It served as the Lok Janshakti Party’s official Delhi headquarters, where all of the party’s official events and organizational meetings were held, as well as its regional headquarters.
Following his death, members of his party illegally transformed the bungalow into an official memorial by erecting a statue of him on the lawn of their home. In 2000, the Centre passed legislation prohibiting the conversion of Lutyens’ bungalows into memorials.
A team from the Directorate of Estates of the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs was dispatched today to the city’s central business district to carry out an eviction order.
The Paswan family has been divided due to disagreements between his son and brother, Pashupati Kumar Paras, over his legacy and the leadership of the party he founded.
Many ministers and their families end up residing in Lutyens bungalows for much longer periods of time than they should have been required to.
Former Union Minister Ajit Singh finally left his Tughlaq Road bungalow in 2014, nearly four months after exceeding his welcome. The government and Singh engaged in a lengthy back-and-forth about why Singh had overstayed his welcome.
As a result of the withdrawal of her SPG protection, the government has served Priyanka Gandhi Vadra with a notice to vacate her bungalow by 2020, claiming that she is no longer entitled to the facility.
In response to accusations from Congress that the government was motivated by “hatred” and “vendetta,” a full-fledged political battle broke out.
