Speaking to ANI, Adityanath said, "This is a Supreme Court (SC) order. We all have to respect it, and it is final. We have sent a notice to the former chief ministers to vacate their government bungalows soon. Officials from the Department of Treasury Directorate are carrying out their orders."
According to media reports, Samajwadi Party (SP) supremo Mulayam Singh Yadav on Thursday met Adityanath over the top court's recent order of asking former Uttar Pradesh Chief Ministers to vacate their official residences.
On May 7, the SC quashed the law passed by the then Akhilesh Yadav-led state government in 2016, granting permanent residential accommodation to former chief ministers of the state.
The apex court, in its order, said former chief ministers of the state were not entitled to government bungalows.
The law was then challenged by the NGO Lok Prahari in the top court.
