    A court in Delhi has ordered the Rajya Sabha secretariat to not evict AAP MP Raghav Chadha from a Type-7 bungalow in Lutyens’ Delhi. The bungalow is usually given to lawmakers who have served as former ministers, chief ministers, or governors. Chadha’s application for the bungalow is still pending, and the court has asked the secretariat to follow proper legal procedures. The court will decide whether Chadha’s case against the secretariat’s cancellation of the bungalow’s allocation to him on July 10, 2023 can be maintained.

    No one from the Rajya Sabha secretariat has commented on the court order or Chadha’s plea yet. The secretariat’s legal representative objected to the application’s maintainability during the hearings. The court has scheduled the case for order on July 10 after hearing arguments from both sides about the question of maintainability. In April, the court had directed the secretariat to not evict Chadha from the bungalow “without due process of law” while the application is still pending.

    Chadha’s argument is that the secretariat is operating in “haste,” and there is a good chance he could lose his property without going through the proper legal channels. Chadha’s attorney has said that the secretariat is “hell-bent” on evicting him from the designated accommodations and had asked the court to obtain an ex-parte ad-interim order against it. If the injunction was not granted, Chadha would sustain irreparable harm. However, the estate officer has not issued any orders, and no eviction proceedings have been started, according to the court.

    Chadha was given a “Type 6” house at Pandara Park on July 6 last year but requested a “Type 7” residence on August 29. He was given a different bungalow across Pandara Road from the Rajya Sabha pool. In March of this year, the allotment was cancelled. Chadha has asked for an injunction to stop the secretariat from acting further in response to the letter dated March 3 and to stop it from giving the bungalow to someone else.
