Supreme Court Orders Tejashwi Yadav To Vacate Govt Bungalow, Imposes Fine Of Rs 50,000

The Supreme Court today i.e., February 8, 2019, ordered former Bihar deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav to vacate the Government bungalow meant for the deputy chief minister.

A Bench comprising of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justices Deepak Gupta and Sanjiv Khanna also imposed a fine of Rs 50,000 on the leader for challenging the Patna High Court decision wherein the High Court had directed Yadav to vacate the government bungalow and to shift to an accommodation for the leader of the opposition.

The matter pertains to an order passed by the Bihar government asking Yadav, who is currently the leader of the opposition (LoP) in the state assembly to vacate his bungalow to make way for Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi.

Aggrieved by the said order, Yadav moved to the Patna High Court which turned down his petition. Thus leading him to approach the apex court.

The bungalow was allotted to Yadav in 2015 when he was appointed deputy chief minister of the then 'Grand Alliance' government headed by Nitish Kumar. However, when the alliance broke up, Yadav was asked to vacate the bungalow.
