Have a house for rent in Lucknow? Akhilesh Yadav is looking for one

Former Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister and Samajwadi Party leader Akhilesh Yadav have requested more time to vacate his bungalow as he is looking for a rented house, Financial Express has reported.

Akhilesh Yadav was one of the six former UP Chief Ministers who was served an eviction notice by the Yogi Adityanath led BJP government asking them to vacate their official bungalows within the next 15 days. These notices are in line with a 7 May Supreme Court order which struck down the act which enabled the former Chief Ministers eligible for official accommodation.

Akhilesh as reported, is now seeking two years of time from the Supreme Court to stay in the government bungalow, as “there is no property registered under his name”. He claims that if the Supreme Court doesn’t agree to his request, he would vacate the house, as soon as he finds a rented flat.

Under the property affair, Akhilesh was also quoted as making things melodramatic by claiming that he made a mistake by not building his own house and if granted time, will rectify it.

Even Times of India quoted Akhilesh as claiming that neither he nor his father owns a house in Lucknow.

This claim that he doesn’t have a property registered under his name or that he doesn’t own a house in Lucknow, though doesn’t seem to hold true as going by the election affidavit he filed in 2012 – which is uploaded on myneta.info, he owns a residential building on Vikramaditya Marg in the state capital, which he purchased in 2005 and appears to jointly own it along with his wife:

Though it remains to be seen whether he has sold the said residential property since then.

Such a ‘drama’ by Akhilesh over the eviction comes after his father Mulayam had tried to save his and his son’s bungalow by requesting CM Yogi to get around the rules and allot those bungalows to SP leaders Ram Govind Chaudhary and Ahmed Hasan.

Another former Chief Minister Mayawati has already found some form of a loophole to retain control of her bungalow, by making it a Kanshi Ram memorial rest house.
