Congress leader Priyanka Gandhi Vadra has been asked to vacate her government bungalow in Delhi. Gandhi needs to vacate the bungalow by August 1. A government notice said her allotment stands cancelled from July 1 and she owes Rs 3.46 lakh in dues. Reportedly, shortly after the notice, Gandhi made an online payment to ensure that her dues were all paid. In the notice, the Ministry of Housing and Urban Affairs said Priyanka Gandhi must exit bungalow 35 on Lodhi Estate allotted to her in 1997 as she no longer has Special Protection Group security. She continues to be under Z-plus security, which does not offer accommodation. Elite SPG cover given to Congress president Sonia Gandhi, Rahul Gandhi and Priyanka Gandhi since the 1991 assassination of former Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi was withdrawn in November 2019. The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) had, in November last year amended the SPG rules to restrict the special security cover only for serving and former Prime Ministers. Congress spokesperson Randeep Surjewala said the move "signals the anxiety" of PM Modi and Uttar Pradesh Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath.
