Leaks to the media from the Congress suggested that Amar Singhs offensive against the ruling party was also linked to the Samajwadi Partys demand for posh bungalows for its senior party leaders. Those who floated this did not realise that the ploy could boomerang. Case in point is senior SP leader Ram Gopal Yadav. While the Government allotted a posh bungalow at 9,Teen Murti Lane,to Yadav sometime late last year,he never took possession of the bungalow. However,he held back the allotment from cancellation for over a month only on the request from a senior Congress leader who wanted to host the wedding ceremony of his son in those premises. Ceremony over,the bungalow was handed back.
