Buta tells Rabri's brothers to vacate bungalows

Anand Mohan Sahay in Patna | May 10, 2005 20:53 IST

Former Bihar chief minister Rabri Devi's two brothers, Sadhu Yadav and Subhas Yadav, both Rashtriya Janata Dal members of Parliament, have to vacate their palatial houses in Patna, which they had illegally occupied.

Two Union Ministers Jaiprakash Narain Yadav and Akhilesh Prasad Singh have also been told to vacate their bungalows.

Governor Buta Singh on Tuesday made it clear that the MPs would have to vacate their palatial houses in Patna without delay.

"I don't know whether or not the MPs are allotted official accommodation in Delhi, but they will have to vacate government quarters in Patna," Singh told newspersons in reference to Sadhu Yadav's statement that he would not vacate his official bungalow as he was yet to get a house in New Delhi.

"They can stay in Bihar Niwas or a five-star hotel, the expenses for which will be borne by Parliament," Singh said.

He said the government would strictly implement the Patna high court order passed a couple of months ago to evict persons illegally occupying government bungalows and flats.

Only last week notices have been issued to Sadhu, Subhas and others to vacate official bungalows, but they were still holding it illegally.

In March this year, a day after President's rule was imposed in the state, the state administration asked MPs and legislators who were not entitled to occupy bungalows to vacate them soon.

Rabri's brothers' 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 last year, the opposition had raised a hue and cry over the two occupying the bungalows.

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