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.
During a campaign ahead of the 2019 general election, Rahul Gandhi had reportedly said, “How come all thieves have the common surname Modi?”
Based on a complaint filed by BJP MLA and former Gujarat minister Purnesh Modi a case was filed.
Addressing a press conference in Delhi over his disqualification, Rahul Gandhi on Saturday said, “My name is not Savarkar, my name is Gandhi and Gandhi does not offer an apology to anyone”.
