On Monday, the Lok Sabha Housing Committee reportedly asked Gandhi to vacate his government-allotted bungalow by April 22.
In a letter to Rahul Gandhi, Lok Sabha Secretariat Deputy Secretary Mohit Ranjan said that he was directed to state that the Congress leader is allowed to retain the bungalow along with its units for a “maximum period of one month, ie up to April 22” on on similar terms and conditions as applicable to an MP before his disqualification, according to ANI.

The development comes days after Gandhi was found guilty of criminal defamation for his comments on PM Narendra Modi’s surname.
During an election campaign in 2019, Gandhi had said, “Nirav Modi, Lalit Modi, Narendra Modi… How come all the thieves have Modi as a common surname?”
