Akhilesh to pay ₹10 lakh for damages to govt bungalow as per Reports

News From States

Uttar Pradesh; A report has been submitted to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath’s office regarding the damages at the government bungalow vacated by Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav. The 266-page report was filed by the estate department following Uttar Pradesh Governor Ram Naik’s instruction to CM Adityanath to take action against Akhilesh Yadav for reportedly leaving the government bungalow in shambles.

According to sources, the report has claimed a loss of Rs 10 lakh and might serve a notice to the Samajwadi chief to recover it. Akhilesh had handed over the keys of the official bungalow on Vikramaditya Marg to the UP estates department on June 8 following the Supreme Court’s order. The official bungalow was found in a poor state with broken tiles, missing water taps, bathroom fittings and damaged swimming pool.

The Supreme Court had ordered on May 7 that former UP chief ministers cannot retain government accommodation in Lucknow. The Samajwadi chief, however, had rejected the allegations and said that it was an attempt by the Yogi Adityanath government to misguide the people of the state and tarnish his image. He had accused the Yogi government of trying to keep the people stuck in petty issues like houses and bungalows, while not remedying the larger problems that are being faced by the people. He had also offered to buy the things missing from the bungalow and send it to Yogi Adityanath.
