City

Court orders NCP to vacate Delhi office

| | New Delhi

A city court has ordered the Sharad Pawar-led Nationalist Congress Party (NCP) to vacate its Delhi office. The office of NCP is currently located in the posh Lutyens zone at 10, Dr Bishambar Das Marg in the heart of the national

Capital.

District Judge Poonam A Bamba on Thursday rejected the appeal of the NCP against the order of the Estate Officer, who had asked it to vacate the premises which is to be demolished for redevelopment of the area.

“In view of the above, the appellant’s contention of being singled out and action of cancellation of allotment of the said bungalow being motivated, is also without any basis,” it said, noting that the occupants of other bungalows in the area have also been asked to vacate.

It also noted that the allotment of the premises stood cancelled with effect from April 1 this year and that the NCP has already taken over possession of an alternate bungalow.

In its August 1 order, the Estate Officer had asked the NCP and everyone living at 10, Dr Bishambar Das Marg to vacate the premises.

The bungalow was allotted to the appellant in June 2000. In March this year, a notice was sent to the political party mentioning that due to redevelopment project of Dr BD Marg, it was decided to allot bungalow no 1, Canning Lane, to the party as an alternate building.

However, the NCP refused to accept the alternate bungalow, claiming that it was too small and does not fulfil its requirement.
