Mahua Moitra withdraws petition against eviction of government bungalow from Delhi High Court, know the reason

Cash for query row: The Delhi High Court allowed Trinamool Congress (TMC) leader Mahua Moitra to withdraw her plea challenging the eviction notice issued by the Estate Directorate asking her to vacate the government accommodation allotted to her.

Moitra was expelled from the Lok Sabha. Her lawyer said the petition had become meaningless as she had already vacated the bungalow. Justice Sachin Dutta said, “The petitioner has already stated that he has vacated the concerned residence. The petition is dismissed as withdrawn. ,

The TMC leader vacated the government bungalow on January 19 after the High Court refused to grant any interim relief.

What did Mahua Moitra say?
On January 18, the High Court had rejected an application of Moitra. In this application, Moitra had requested to stop the authorities from evicting her from the government bungalow on medical grounds. Moitra had said that she lives alone and gets treatment in a hospital here. He is ready to pay whatever rent the bungalow may have.

However, the High Court said that the issue of expulsion of the petitioner from the Lok Sabha is pending before the Supreme Court. In such a situation, the issue of extension of time to vacate the government accommodation is related to him and as of today he has no right.

When was the notice issued to Mahua Moitra?
A notice to vacate the bungalow immediately was issued to Mahua Moitra on January 16. Moitra, who was expelled from the Lok Sabha on December 8 last year, was asked to vacate the house by January 7 after the bungalow allotment was cancelled.

Moitra was found guilty of unethical conduct and expelled from the House for accepting gifts in return for asking questions from businessman Darshan Hiranandani to target his business rival Gautam Adani.
