Deputy Leader of the Opposition in the Rajya Sabha Ravi Shankar Prasad has refuted the Directorate of Estate of the Ministry of Urban Development’s claims that he is among the former Union Ministers who continue to occupy houses meant for Ministers.

On Tuesday, Mr. Prasad said: “The inclusion of my name is factually incorrect and based upon insufficient information. I was allotted type VII bungalow in my capacity as Minister. However, after I demitted office, the bungalow was reverted to the Rajya Sabha pool ... I am in the third term as Rajya Sabha member. Besides being a former Union Minister, I am the Deputy Leader of my party [BJP] in the Rajya Sabha and as per proper entitlement, the bungalow has been allotted to me by the House Committee of the Rajya Sabha from its own pool where I continue at present. Obviously the RTI information about me is not correct,” he said
