Following his disqualification as a MP, former Congress President Rahul Gandhi got orders from the Lok Sabha Housing Committee to vacate his government bungalow in  Delhi by April 22. Rahul Gandhi was allotted the 12, Tughlaq Lane bungalow after his election as a Lok Sabha MP in 2004.

The heir to the legendary Gandhi family, Rahul Gandhi was convicted in a criminal defamation case, where the court decided on a punishment of 2 years of imprisonment. With this, RaGa also was disqualified as a Lok Sabha MP from Wayanad. Gandhi was also under a lot of flak for his inappropriate comments against the Indian democracy in a speech in London.

An official from the Housing Committee stated that Rahul Gandhi has filed an application to extend his stay at the residence, which is being considered by the panel.

The notification issued by the Lok Sabha Secretariat was marked to various departments, including the Directorate of Estates, New Delhi Municipal Council, and all the benefits available to Gandhi as a member of Parliament too are under review.
Though the court has allowed immediate bail to Rahul Gandhi and provided his 30 days to appeal in a higher court, he wont be able to contest elections for 8 years. This is unless a higher court stays his conviction and sentence.

Rahul Gandhi’s office in Wayanad stands barren, as all operations have ceased since the disqualification in the office located in Kalpetta town. The office not accepting any complaints.

The Congress party has said it would fight the conviction and disqualification of Rahul Gandhi politically and legally lifted s an MP. They have openly expressed their anger and disappointed. Many Congress MLAs and MPs have gone on protest outside their respective Legislative buildings and the Parliament.
