Former Chief Minister of Uttar Pradesh Akhilesh Yadav claimed that he is looking for a rented flat in Lucknow ever since he was asked to vacate the government bungalow. The Samajwadi Party President has asked for a period of two years to find a suitable residence due to his family requirements and large security detail. Akhilesh’s father former UP CM Mulayam Singh Yadav has also been asked to vacate his official residence.

?Being an ex-CM, the administration has also provided me the Z-plus security cover (including NSG commandos), for which I need adequate space also. Being the current National President of Samajwadi Party, I have visitors, Akhilesh said in the letter sent to UP estate officer Yogesh Shukla as per TOI.

However, unlike the former CM, Mayawati owns a huge private bungalow near her official residence on Mall Avenue road, which she bought few years ago. Her five acres private residence is said to be equally huge as her current official residence. A 10-bedroom residence, it boasts of Rajasthan sandstone and pink marble. Mayawati after getting the notice to vacate her official residence, converted it into a memorial by adding a signboard ‘Shri Kanshi Ramji Memorial Rest House.’

Narhari Zirwal – the Deputy Speaker in Maharashtra Assembly – on Saturday (June 25) issued disqualification notice to 16 rebel Shiv Sena MLAs.

The MLAs, who are being led by Eknath Shinde, are currently staying at Guwahati in Assam. These MLAs are supposed to file their written replies by 5:30 pm on Monday (June 27).  If the MLAs are disqualified, Shinde will lose his legislator’s post and that, crucially, will see his revolt fail.

The Shiv Sena had moved the original notice against 12 rebel MLAs, including Shinde, late Thursday evening and added another four names on Friday.

Even as Uddhav Thackeray-led Shiv Sena is seeking disqualification of its rebel MLAs from the assembly, the rebel MLAs led by Eknath Shinde on Saturday (June 25) named their group as ‘Shiv Sena Balasaheb.’

Rebel Shiv Sena MLA Deepak Keserkar said: “Our group will be called Shiv Sena Balasaheb. We will not merge with any party.” Kesarkar has also hinted at a possible alliance with the BJP. “We have only two options remaining in Maharashtra; to go with either the NCP-Congress or the BJP, otherwise the government cannot be formed. However, the question of allying with the BJP will be decided by Eknath Shinde. Whatever decision he takes, we will support it.”

Meanwhile Maharashtra Congress leader Ashok Chavan said: “Until it gets legal authorisation from the speaker, such type of groups will not be authorized.”
