In yet another instance of a former minister refusing to vacate the state provided accommodation, member of erstwhile Sheila Dikshit Government, Kiran Walia has chosen to stay put at the official residence provided to her, even four months after the Congress Government was ousted from power in Delhi.
Consequently, Walia, now, owes Rs.9.28 lakh in house rent arrears to the Public Works Department.
Walia is currently occupying House Number-one Satya Sadan marg,Chanakyapuri, which was allotted to her when she was the Women and Child Development Minister.
According to a senior PWD official, several notices have been sent to Walia, asking her to vacate the government bungalow.
But she has neither got back to the department nor paid the rent.
Former state ministers Harun Yusuf and Arvinder Singh Lovely have vacated their government accommodation but have not paid the rent yet.
