Sources said on Wednesday that the government had sent a team to evict Lok Sabha MP Chirag Paswan from a bungalow allotted to him by his late father Ram Bilas Paswan. The Department of Estate, which comes under the Union Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs, sent a team of officials to Janpath bungalows in the city center to enforce the eviction order issued to Chirag Paswan last year, they said.
The 12-lane bungalow has been earmarked for Union ministers and residents of government residences have been asked to vacate it, officials said. The house was the official address of the Lok Janshakti Party (LJP), now divided into two due to differences between Chirag Paswan and his uncle Pashupati Kumar Paras following the death of former Union Minister Ram Bilas Paswan. It was regularly used in party organizational meetings and other ancillary events.
