Recently, an NGO requested Supreme Court (SC) to make amendments to its earlier verdict and allow the ex-CMs of the UP state to continue holding their official bungalows. However, Supreme Court rejected that plea and asked the ex-CMs to vacate their bungalows. Following the apex court’s order, Yogi government issued notice to six former CMs of UP, including Akhilesh Yadav and Mayawati, to vacate the bungalows, and some of them vacated as well. However, Akhilesh and Mayawati finding it difficult to evacuate their bungalows as they have almost considered the official bungalows as their own. Moreover, they are finding reasons to not to leave their bungalows.
If you think occupying government bungalow even after the SC’s order as funny, Akhilesh’s reasons to stay in the bungalow are even funnier. He gave the reason that he is looking for a flat on rent in Lucknow. He adds that he’s not been able to build a home so far (may be because he considered government’s house as his own house).
HMP News managed to obtain the copy of an affidavit files by Akhilesh during the recent election the state to declare his assets. According to this affidavit, a news by a leading media and the data from myneta.info website, Akhilesh had total assets worth ~16 crores and hamari Bhabhi ji had ~7.2 crores. Akhilesh had ~22 lakhs deposited in banks along with ~70 lakhs as FDs.
While this crorepati and his crorepatni have the capability of buying an alishaan bungalow anywhere in India, it is ridiculous that they are not finding a rented house in Lucknow. I wonder if Akhilesh wants to rent Taj Mahal, Rumi Darwaza or Red Fort, otherwise finding a house in Lucknow is not that difficult. It is evident that he is lying about not finding a house, but it is lot funnier to hear this from him.
