Pictures and video clips showed damage to a cycle track, on walls after air-conditioners seemed to have been removed and to the floor of what seemed to be a badminton court at the bungalow here.
The Samajwadi Party played down the damage, asking why the state of the homes recently vacated by other former Uttar Pradesh chief ministers in compliance with a Supreme Court order was not being shown.
The BJP mocked the SP chief, saying the damage showed Akhilesh Yadav's frustration.
After this, the authorities let photographers to enter the premises.
Following the SC order, the UP estates department had issued notices to six former chief ministers - Narayan Dutt Tiwari, Mulayam Singh Yadav, Kalyan Singh, Mayawati, Rajnath Singh and Akhilesh Yadav.
The SP said the video clips indicated that the BJP was worried over Yadav's popularity.
"The reason is that after the electoral losses in Gorakhpur, Phulpur, Kairana and Noorpur, Akhilesh Yadav's popularity is increasing, and it has given cause for worry to UP Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath."
Sajan also asked why no estates department official was present when the bungalow Yadav vacated was shown to the media.
He said the estates department should provide an inventory of the work done by it at the bungalow.
In a tweet, Yadav said his opponents were calling his home the 'White House' and asked if this meant they themselves stayed in a black house.
He said the SP and Yadav must tell the people why the tiles at the house were uprooted.
Asked about the video clips showing the damage at Yadav's bungalow, estates department official Yogesh Kumar Shukla said the department will check its inventory to see what fittings were provided by it.
The department will serve a notice if it finds any shortcomings or "intentional damage," he told PTI.
Of the six bungalows allotted to former chief ministers, only N D Tiwari's house is yet to be handed over.
"He is bedridden for the past eight months and I am also not keeping well. It is not practically possible for me to come down to Lucknow and vacate the premises," she had told PTI over the phone on June 2.
