Ajit Singh: Will vacate govt accommodation by Sept 25

A day after the Union Government cracked the whip by disconnecting power and water supplies to the official accommodation of former union minister Ajit Singh, the Rashtriya Lok Dal leader today said he will vacate the accommodation by 25th of this month.

“I have lived here for 36 years. My father (Chaudhary Charan Singh) moved here in 1978 and thereafter there are so many things I have to sort out before moving. I got the notice on August 11 and will move out on September 24-25. I do not think it’s unreasonable,” he said. Singh also said he had found a house and signed a lease as well.

“I found the house and we have signed the lease also. So, when they came on 9th, I informed them that I have signed the lease...... But now its ‘Pitru Paksh’. So as soon as it’s over in about two weeks or so, I will go,” the former Civil Aviation Minister said.

The government had yesterday disconnected power and water supplies to the official accommodations of former union ministers and ex-MPs, including Ajit Singh, Jitendra Singh and Mohd Azharuddin who refused to vacate the premises. Last week, an eviction team, along with police, had faced stiff resistance at Ajit Singh’s Tughlaq Road residence when they had gone to take possession of the house. — PTI
