Central Government has asked Congress General Secretary Priyanka Vadra to vacate the government bungalow at Lodhi Estates in Delhi. They have granted an extension till August 1, 2020. The letter sent to Priyanka by the Deputy Director of Estates states that rent / fine will have to be paid if staying in the bungalow even after the scheduled time.

Congress spokesperson Charan Singh Sapra said in a conversation with a channel that ‘this step shows the politics of revenge’. He said that ‘Modi government has a changed attitude’. He said that he (BJP government) wants to de-motivate the Congress worker. The Congress spokesperson said that ‘Priyanka Gandhi is in danger, she is the daughter of Rajiv Gandhi who was killed in the terrorist attack. She is the granddaughter of Indira Gandhi who was brutally killed. ‘ He alleged that “We are moving towards Hitler Raj”.
