"Now the of opposition must vacate his 5, Deshratna Marg house within 5-7 days. It is not good to have so much fight and greed for government accommodation. He is 29 years old and has 52 properties including 5 houses- 3 in Patna, 1 in Gopalganj and a sprawling 4-floor house in Delhi," said

The relocation of the house by Deputy Chief Minister, came only days after the High Court on January 7 rejected Rashtriya (RJD) leader Tejashwi Yadav's petition challenging the government's order to vacate his bungalow.

The bungalow was allocated to Tejashwi in 2015 upon his appointment as in the Nitish Kumar-led government in the state. However, he continues to occupy the bungalow even after RJD broke the alliance with Nitish Kumar-led (United).

In October, the High Court rejected Tejashwi's appeal against the Bihar government's plea to evict him from his official residence at 5, Deshratna Marg.

Thereafter in November, Tejashwi had filed a fresh appeal challenging the high court's judgement.

The bungalow has been reassigned to present Deputy Chief Minister in 2017 after JD (U) formed the coalition with BJP.
