Rabri's brothers told to vacate houses

Outgoing chief minister Rabri Devi's two brothers, Sadhu Yadav and Subhas Yadav, have been told to vacate their palatial houses in Patna, which they had illegally occupied.

A senior government officer told on Tuesday that notices have been issued to the two.

Interestingly, this comes a day after President's rule was imposed in the state.

Both Sadhu Yadav and Subhas Yadav are Rashtriya Janata Dal members of Parliament and enjoy tremendous clout in the state. Their houses are situated in the high security zone near 1 Anne Marg, which is the official residence of Rabri Devi.

After Sadhu and Subhas became MPs, opposition raised a hue and cry over the two occupying the bungalows. The opposition wanted the two to vacate the buildings, as they were not entitled to them.

However, the state administration cold-shouldered the opposition's protest and the two continued to occupy the buildings.

Over two-dozen ministers of the outgoing government will also have to vacate their official bungalows.

But Rabri Devi will be allowed to stay in her official residence because it has not been notified as the official residence of Bihar chief minister.
