MANDI: Raising objections to the construction of Priyanka Gandhi Vadra’s house, Suresh Bhardwaj, BJP’s Shimla MLA, has written to Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh for cancelling the permission granted to her by the state government, saying it is being built close to 'The Retreat', the President’s guest house in Shimla.

“I have written a letter to the Home Minister pertaining to the construction taking place, around the President of India’s summer residence The Retreat in Shimla. No construction should be allowed in the vicinity of either The Retreat or the Kalyani helipad, as it is a high security zone,” Bhardwaj told ANI.

“VVIPs, including the Prime Minister, also visits and stay here and Priyanka's house has put the security of the dignitaries at stake,” he added.

Bhardwaj further said the permission to construct a house near The Retreat was denied to several persons, including Commodore Devinderjeet Singh (a retired senior naval officer) for security reasons.

“The commodore had purchased around 2,400 sq yards near The Retreat and submitted an application for permission to build cottages. However, permission was denied to him,” he said.

“How is it possible that Priyanka Gandhi got the permission,” asked the BJP MLA.
