Akhilesh Yadav, who has pleaded “homelessness” in the Supreme Court to try and hold on to a government allotted bungalow for two more years, challenged the media to “find him a place”.
SP chief Akhilesh Yadav had said on Tuesday that he had sought time to vacate his bungalow as he needs time to shift into a rented accommodation or get his own house constructed in Lucknow. “Neither Netaji (Mulayam Singh Yadav) nor I have our own house in Lucknow. We have sought time to find an accommodation to shift out of the government bungalows allotted to us as former chief ministers,” he said.
The Samajwadi Party chief and his father Mulayam Singh Yadav have both moved the Supreme Court against an order that asks former chief ministers to vacate their official bungalows and asked for two-year’s time.
His response came after UP minister Sidharth Nath Singh accused SP and BSP leaders of sticking to the government bungalows.
In his petition before the Supreme Court, Mulayam Singh asks for time citing his age and ill-health. Akhilesh Yadav lists security and his children’s education as reasons why he should be allowed to hang on to the bungalow he was entitled to as chief minister.
