Chouhan allows 3 BJP’s ex-CMs to retain govt bungalows

Bhopa: Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan on Saturday allowed three BJP’s former chief ministers to retain their government bungalows using his ‘discretionary powers’.

BJP’s former Chief Minister Babulal Gaur including Uma Bharti and Kailash Chandra Joshi was allowed to retain his government bungalow.

The three BJP’s former chief ministers who will retain their bungalows are Uma Bharti, Kailash Chandra Joshi and Babulal Gaur.

However, the name of two-term Congress chief minister Digvijaya Singh was not allowed to retain his government bungalow.

Chouhan took this decision after the former chief ministers were asked to vacate government bungalows following a Madhya Pradesh High Court order.

On June 19, the Madhya Pradesh High Court had directed the state government to order former chief ministers to vacate the official bungalows in Bhopal within a month.
