Rajasthan HC to hear a case on bungalows for ex-CMs on Jul 12 

The Rajasthan High Court will hear the case of free housing to the former chief ministers and the law that entitles them to other free incentives on July 12.

The development comes as former Uttar Pradesh chief ministers began vacating their bungalows in Lucknow following a Supreme Court order last month. 

The Bill for this was passed in the Assembly in April last year by a voice vote, with only rebel BJP leader Ghanshyam Tiwari dissenting. 

It added a new section to the Rajasthan Ministers' Salaries Act, 1956. Tiwari has been demanding that Chief Minister Vasundhara Raje should vacate a plush bungalow at 13, Civil Lines which was allotted to her as a former chief minister and shift to the CM's official residence at 8, Civil Lines. 

Jaipur-based journalist Milap Chand Dandia had filed a public interest litigation against the new section in the Rajasthan law, notified in May last year.
