After being disqualified from the Lok Sabha, the Lok Sabha Housing Committee has reportedly sent a notice to Congress leader Rahul Gandhi to vacate the government-allotted bungalow on Tughlaq Lane.

He has been given a period of 30 days to vacate the premises.

Gandhi was disqualified from the Lok Sabha on Friday, a day after a court in Gujarat’s Surat convicted him in a 2019 defamation case.
