Sandeep Dikshit in bungalow allotment row in MP
New Delhi: Sandeep Dikshit, Congress Member of Parliament (MP) and son of Delhi Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit, has been accused of obtaining a posh bungalow in the Arera Hills locality of Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh by using his influence.
Reports, Friday, claimed that former Jabalpur Director General of Police (DGP) and RTI activist Arun Gurtu has filed a petition in the state’s High Court challenging the allotment of a bungalow by the state’s housing board to the East Delhi MP.
In his plea, Gurtu had questioned why the Madhya Pradesh Housing Board has allotted the bungalow to Sandeep, who lives in Delhi and has no connection with Bhopal.
Defending himself, the Congress MP says that he has been allotted the bungalow through a fair allotment process and has denied any wrong doing.
Meanwhile, Delhi Chief Minister has also defended his son saying there is nothing wrong in the allotment as all due procedures were followed before allotment.
This is the second time when the young Congress MP has landed in troubled waters. Just recently, he was in news for accidentally leaving behind a bag containing Rs10 lakh in cash in a Bhopal-bound train.
However, he later claimed that the money belonged to his friend.
