Senior BJP leader Sushil Kumar Modi on September 6 hit out at Chief Minister Nitish Kumar for not vacating a bungalow which was alloted to him as a former CM, despite shifting to his official accommodation recently.
“Kumar has recently moved to his official residence at 1, Anne Marg, but he is yet to vacate another bungalow allotted to him in his capacity as ex-Chief Minister about two years ago,” he told reporters on the sidelines of the weekly Janata Durbar at his residence.
Propriety demands that the Chief Minister must not keep two official accommodations at the same time and Kumar should vacate the bungalow at 7, Circular Road at the earlier after moving to the official residence recently, Sushil said.
The senior BJP leader also charged Kumar with wasteful expenditure worth crores of rupees on renovation and installation of high-tech communication network at his 7, Ciruclar Road residence.
The former deputy chief minister assailed Kumar for adopting double standards on maintenance and renovation of houses allotted to former CMs and alleged that in contrast to huge expenditure for renovation and upkeep of the bungalow in possession of Kumar as ex-CM, no worthwhile amount has been spent on maintenance of official residences of other ex-CMs.
