LS Speaker yet o vacate from government residence
Subhash Chandra Agrawal | 21 Mar 2011
RECENT DOCUMENTS received from Union Ministry of Urban Development reveal that Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar has failed to vacate government-bungalow number 6 at Krishna Menon Marg (New Delhi) earlier allotted to her in her capacity as Parliamentarian despite her being subsequently allotted official residence for Lok Sabha Speaker at Akbar Road (New Delhi). Unfortunately such incident is not isolated one where additional bungalow could be vacated from former Vice President Bhairo Singh Shekhawat only as after-effect of series of RTI petitions.
Persons posted at high posts should be role-model for others in observing rules in respect of government-property. Our politicians should take Shabana Azmi as their role-model who went to attend her last day in Rajya Sabha after vacating her government-bungalow allotted to her as a Rajya Sabha member.
