Rahul Gandhi’s official bungalow included in the Lok Sabha list of vacant houses: Reports

Although Rahul Gandhi lost the elections from his seat Amethi, he was elected from Wayanad.

As the former MPs of Lok Sabha who were not re-elected vacate their government allotted bungalows in Delhi and newly elected MPs wait for accommodation, the Lok Sabha secretariat has published a list of vacant bungalows. And surprisingly, this list includes 12, Tughlaq Lane, the official residence of Congress president Rahul Gandhi who has been re-elected to the lower house from Wayanad in Kerala, according to a report by ANI. Rahul Gandhi is occupying the residence since he was allotted the same after he became a member of Lok Sabha from Amethi in 2004.

The report says that the circular issued by the secretariat mentions the addresses of various bungalows which will be allotted to the MPs of the current Lok Sabha. The 12 Tughlaq Lane is a ‘Type 8’ category house, which is the highest category among the Lutyens bungalows.

According to rules, a list of vacant bungalows and flats is given to the MPs by the Lok Sabha secretariat from which they can choose and apply their desired accommodation. The list circulated this year has a list of 517 bungalows and flats, where the Rahul Gandhi’s bungalow also has been included.

The ANI report says that Rahul Gandhi’s office has no knowledge about the circular.
