On April 14, Congress MP Rahul Gandhi shifted his office and some personal belongings from the bungalow to the official residence of his mother Sonia Gandhi.
New Delhi: In the big breaking development, Rahul Gandhi left the government bungalow at 12, Tughlaq Lane today i.e. on 22 April. On April 14, Rahul Gandhi shifted his office and some personal belongings from the bungalow to the official residence of his mother Sonia Gandhi. Sources said Gandhi picked up his remaining belongings from the bungalow on Friday evening.
This bungalow was allotted to him as an MP. A truck carrying their belongings was seen leaving the building. He was living in this bungalow for almost two decades. Sources said that after changing his office, he has already started living with his mother and Congress Parliamentary Party President Sonia Gandhi at her 10, Janpath residence.
On March 23, a court in Surat convicted Rahul Gandhi in a defamation case and sentenced him to two years imprisonment, after which he was disqualified as an MP. After this, the Lok Sabha Secretariat asked him to vacate the bungalow by 22 April. Rahul Gandhi challenged the order of the Surat magistrate court, which rejected his appeal to set aside the sentence. The Congress party has said that the sessions court’s order will be challenged in the Gujarat High Court next week.
After Rahul Gandhi was disqualified as a Member of Parliament, the Lok Sabha Secretariat had sent a notice asking him to vacate the bungalow by 22 April. Let me tell you, a few years ago Priyanka Gandhi Vadra was also asked to vacate the bungalow located in Lodhi Estate after the SPG security cover was removed. Rahul Gandhi was first elected as an MP from Amethi in Uttar Pradesh in 2004 and in 2019 he won the Lok Sabha elections from Wayanad.
