Priyanka Gandhi asked to vacate govt bunglow by Aug 1-1New Delhi: Congress general secretary Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has been asked to vacate her government bungalow in New Delhi's 35 Lodhi Estate by August 1.

The Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs has cancelled the allotment of Priyanka Gandhi's bungalow after her SPG cover was withdrawn by the government in 2019.

Priyanka Gandhi has been living at the Type VI bungalow since 1997.

It was allotted to her despite being a private citizen on the account of Priyanka Gandhi having been a Special Protection Group (SPG) protectee.

The SPG rules allow all the protectees to get government accommodation. Priyanka Gandhi, however, pays rent for the Lodhi Estate bungalow.
