Govt. rejects Scindia’s Lutyens’ bungalow plea

The Centre has rejected a request of senior Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia to retain his official bungalow in the posh Lutyens’ Delhi, sources said.

Mr. Scindia, who lost the Lok Sabha election from Guna in Madhya Pradesh, had been staying at the 27, Safdarjung Road bungalow for several years.

He was an MP from Guna between 2002 and 2019, and the bungalow had been allotted to him after he succeeded his father Madhavrao Scindia.

Former MPs have to vacate their respective bungalows within one month of dissolution of the previous Lok Sabha, as per rules, and the 16th Lok Sabha was dissolved on May 25.

“The government has rejected Jyotiraditya Scindia’s request for the retention of the 27, Safdarjung Road bungalow,” a source said.

Last month, the bungalow was allotted to HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ subject to the vacation of bungalows by their existing holders.
