Eviction proceedings to be initiated against Mann in Delhi

Friday, 27 May 2022 | Staff Reporter | NEW DELHI

The Directorate of Estates has been asked by the Lok Sabha Secretariat to initiate eviction proceedings against Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader and Punjab Chief Minister Bhagwant Mann for unauthorised occupation of a Central Government accommodation in the national Capital which was allotted to him as a Member of Parliament (MP).

Mann had resigned as Sangrur MP in March to become Punjab's Chief Minister. In its petition before the estates officer, the Secretariat said Mann was allotted Duplex No 33 on North Avenue, along with its units and 153 North Avenue, as his regular accommodation as a member of the 17th Lok Sabha.

“The said allotment stands cancelled in his name with effect from April 14," it said, adding Mann failed to vacate the premises. The occupation of the building by the former MP after April 13 is unauthorised.  It is, therefore requested the proceedings for eviction of Bhagwan Mann, ex-MP and all persons may be initiated and orders for their eviction be passed," reads the petition sent to the estates officer.

The accommodation has now been issued to Hanuman Beniwal, RLP president and MP from Rajasthan. Central Government employees, MPs and judges are allotted accommodation in the Capital, but after their term expires or ends prematurely they are no longer eligible for it.

As per PRS Legislative, to evict a person a Central Government estate officer issues a notice to the individual after which s/he has to show cause within three working days as to why an eviction notice should not be issued against them.
