Hitting back at Akhilesh Yadav, Uttar Pradesh Minister Sidharth Nath Singh said that order to vacate Bungalow was given by the Supreme Court and not by the state government.
Speaking to media, Singh said,''Ulta chor kotwal ko daante.' He said he renovated bungalow with his money. Income Tax should see if calculations are fine, even better if he himself submits how did he use money & where did he get money from.''
''I would like to tell him you're a respected leader and former CM but besides that, you're also well-educated. When you demolish walls of the house where you yourself lived... What was hidden behind the wall that you had to break it down?''
Earlier in the day, Former Uttar Pradesh chief minister Akhilesh Yadav on Wednesday hit out at the Bharatiya Janata Party over claims that the official bungalow he recently vacated in Lucknow was damaged. "The BJP is rattled after repeated defeats in a series of by-elections," the Samajwadi Party leader said at a press conference. "It is the BJP's conspiracy," he further charged.
His statement came a day after Uttar Pradesh Governor Ram Naik sent a letter to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, asking the state government to take appropriate action over the "damage" at 4, Vikramaditya Marg, reports of which are being circulated in the media. Naik further called it a grave issue involving the taxpayer's money.
