    Justice Jyoti Saran ordered that the matter be heard after a week, while issuing a notice to Bihar Deputy Chief Minster Sushil Kumar Modi who has been named as one of the respondents in the petition.

    The court also directed the respondent authorities "to maintain status quo" with regard to the bungalow –5, Deshratna Marg, "until a final hearing and disposal of this writ petition".

    Yadav, who is currently the leader of the opposition in the state assembly, moved the court challenging a letter dated September 20, 2017, issued by Estate Officer, Building Construction Department, whereby he had been asked to vacate the bungalow.

    Yadav, the younger son of RJD supremo Lalu Prasad, became the Deputy CM in November, 2015 when the Grand Alliance comprising his party, Chief Minister Nitish Kumar's JD(U) and the Congress won a huge majority in the assembly polls. However, he lost the chair in July last year when Kumar walked out of the coalition and formed a new government with the BJP.
