Tejashwi Yadav

In a major blow to former Bihar deputy chief minister Tejashwi Yadav, the Supreme Court on Friday dismissed his plea, challenging the Patna High Court order asking him to vacate a government bungalow meant for the deputy chief minister.

The apex court asked Tejashwi to shift to an accommodation for the leader of the opposition.  

The Supreme court bench comprising Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justices Deepak Gupta and Sanjiv Khanna also imposed a fine of Rs 50,000 on the RJD leader for challenging the government decision.

Yadav, who is currently the leader of the opposition in the state assembly, had filed an appeal against the Patna High Court judgement turning down his petition challenging the Bihar government order to vacate his bungalow to make way for Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Kumar Modi.
