NEW DELHI: AAP dissident Kapil Mishra may not have lost his place in the House but may not be at home for long. Delhi Health and PWD minister Satyendra Jain has asked the PWD to ‘relocate’ Mishra.

Jain is not content with the eviction notice. An additional note warned, “Mishra is no longer a minister, please remove name plate from his house and relocate him as soon as possible.” The bungalow war started after Mishra accused Jain of giving Rs 2 crore to Kejriwal in front of him, and alleged corruption in health department.

PWD sources said its officers are preparing the plan of action. “By coming week, we will issue an eviction notice to Mishra. Before that we’ll ask him to remove the name plate,” said a senior official. Neither Jain nor his staff could be reached for comments.

Similarly, another minister, Imran Hussain, will have to pack his bags from Bunglow 217 on Deen Dayal Upadhyay Marg, since the plot has been allotted for construction of a family court.

Deputy speaker Rakhi Birla, residing in Mangolpuri area, and other ministers are awaiting official homes due to bungalow crisis. A PWD official alleged that many AAP leaders have illegally occupied bungalows and flats. “Action will be initiated against them soon,” he said.

AAP is facing a storm in the House since the party office will get a new address after PWD asked it to vacate the government bungalow. Shades of an old feud between Raj Bhawan and the state government were visible when the PWD official washed his hands of the eviction affair. “AAP has to pay Rs 27 lakh and vacate the office by July 31.”

L-G Anil Baijal had cancelled allotment of 206 on Deen Dayal Upadhyaya Marg to AAP.
