New Delhi, Sep 19(ANI): Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader Nand Kumar Sai, a Rajya Sabha member, spent the night on the street, outside his flat on Friday, as a mark of protest against being evicted from government accommodation by the authorities.
Sai was forcibly evicted from Flat number 176, South Avenue, that was allotted to him during his tenure as a Lok Sabha member, but having lost the elections this year, he has had to give up his seat and his official house.
An angry Sai has demanded action against those who evicted him for what he called 'wrongful action'.
"I want to say that the people behind this should be punished so that a similar thing does not take place with any other MP. Strict action should be taken against the people who have did this thing," said Sai.
Sai was evicted on the grounds that since he was no longer a Lok Sabha lawmaker, he was not entitled to that house.
The flat was allotted to Sai after he became a Lok Sabha lawmaker in 2004. Sai now claims that the same flat was re-allotted to him by the Rajya Sabha secretariat after his election to the upper house of Parliament in 2009. (ANI)
