- Chirag Paswan had been issued notice on July 14 to vacate 12 Janpath that had been allotted to Ram Vila Paswan
New Delhi: There’s more disappointment in store for MP Chirag Paswan. After being removed from the post of Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) president following dissent within the party, Chirag Paswan has now been asked to vacate the government bungalow that had been allotted to his father late Ram Vilas Paswan.
The bungalow, 12 Janpath, had been allotted to Ram Vilas Paswan and has been home to his family for a long time.
According to reports, the directorate of estate had given the notice to vacate the bungalow on July 14. Chirag Paswan had sought more time from the urban development and housing ministry to do so, but did not get any relief.
He had asked the ministry if he could retain the custody of the bungalow for the first year after his father’s death. However, the Centre does not seem to be in a mood to entertain Chirag Paswan’s request.
Ram Vilas Paswan died in October last year. Since then, Chirag had headed the LJP. However in June this year, five out of six MPs of the party asked for Ram Vilas Paswan’s younger brother Pashupati Kumara Paras to be recognized as party leader. They approached Lok Sabha Speaker Om Birla with this request, following which Paras was recognized as the leader of LJP.
