Supreme Court rules no govt bungalows for former UP CMs

New Delhi: The Supreme Court on Monday quashed the law passed by the Uttar Pradesh government granting permanent residential accommodation to former chief ministers of the state.

The law of govt bungalows was passed in August 2016, by the then CM Akhilesh Yadav.

The apex court, in its order, said that former chief ministers of the state were not entitled to government bungalows.

While striking down the law, the Supreme Court said that Section 4(3) of Uttar Pradesh ministers (salaries, allowances and miscellaneous provisions) Act, 2016 was unconstitutional.

The law was passed in August 2016, by the then Akhilesh Yadav-led state government.

The law was then challenged by the NGO Lok Prahari in the top court.
