Scindia has reportedly mentioned in his letter that he is an MP from Guna in Madhya Pradesh and for developmental work in his constituency he has to travel a lot to the state capital. He has added that as he is a Member of Parliament from the state he is eligible for a government bungalow in the state capital.

It is notable here that Scindia has been an MP from 2002 from the Guna constituency where he fought and won the election after the death of his father Madhavrao Scindia. Jyotiradiya Scindia is also the current heir and Maharaja of the erstwhile Gwalior kingdom.

Scindia is reportedly appointed as the President of the election campaign committee for Congress in Madhya Pradesh for the upcoming assembly elections and it is being speculated that a government bungalow will help him coordinate and control the campaign. According to reports, there are 15 leaders in his campaign committee and the bungalow in Bhopal will be helpful during the campaign process. Congress senior leaders Digvijay Singh and Kamalnath both reportedly have government bungalows in Bhopal.

According to reports, Scindia has written the letter on 23rd May and the state home ministry is yet to decide which bungalow to be allocated to him. Though Scindia has not asked for any specific property to be allocated to him, there are reportedly many senior leaders and officials on the waiting list for government bungalows in the state capital.

Government allocated bungalows have always been perceived as a power statement in Indian politics and hence coveted by politicians. After the BJP government came to power in the centre, many squatters have been asked to vacate the bungalows they had been occupying for decades. It was reported that as many as 1500 squatters have been evicted from government bungalows in Lutyens in Delhi alone. In Uttar Pradesh, Yogi Adityanath’s government has ordered many former CMs and political leaders to vacate their government allocated bungalows within 15 days.
