Luxurious ‘samajwad’: Akhilesh Yadav to build a heritage hotel in Lucknow

After trashing his government accommodation and stripping it off fixtures and moving into a villa of his own, Samajwadi Party chief and former UP chief minister Akhilesh Yadav is now planning to build a heritage hotel in the heart of Lucknow. According to reports, the former UP CM, along with his wife MP Dimple Yadav, has submitted an application to the Lucknow Development Authority (LDA) to build a heritage hotel on a prime piece of land in Vikramaditya Marg.

The power couple has reportedly submitted a blueprint of the hotel, named as Hibiscus Heritage to the Lucknow Development Authority for clearance of its map and has sought other necessary approvals. The hotel is planned on a 23,000 square feet plot with number 1-A on Vikramaditya Marg. The plot was reportedly bought by the Akhilesh and his wife in 2005 for the sum of Rs 39 lakhs. Its present value is estimated to be in several crores.

It is notable here that the plot for the proposed hotel is located close to the official bungalow at 4, Vikramaditya Marg that Akhilesh had to vacate recently after a Supreme Court order.

The LDA has reportedly sent the proposal file to the chief town planner after suggesting some corrections in the map. Akhilesh, as per reports, will have to obtain a dozen other permissions from ASI, Fire Department, Lucknow Nagar Nigam, Lucknow Jal Sansthan etc before moving ahead with the construction work. The plot at Vikramaditya Marg is also very close to the 5, Kalidas Marg bungalow that is now the official residence of UP CM Yogi Adityanath.

Akhilesh also reportedly owns several other residential villas and commercial properties in the city. He is believed to have properties in London too, where he is currently on a vacation with his family.

Akhilesh was heavily criticised by the public for initially refusing to vacate his government allocated bungalow even after an SC order. He had even claimed that he does not own a house and is unable to find a house on rent. Akhilesh did vacate his bungalow after the apex court turned his request down. But while vacating, he and his supporters had badly damaged the government funded property.

The 4, Vikramaditya Marg bungalow was stripped of its expensive imported tiles, broken down the gym, removed plants, mirrors and other ornamental items and even had taken away the faucets and plumbings. The Yadav family had then moved to a posh villa owned by them in Lucknow.
