New Delhi: Days after power and water supplies to his official residence were disconnected, RLD chief Ajit Singh on Thursday said he would vacate his government bungalow by next week but claimed people want the house to be converted into a memorial of his father, late Charan Singh.

The former Union minister also slammed the BJP for lack of "courtesy" saying though he cannot stay in the residence after ceasing to be a minister or a lawmaker, he should have been given time to vacate after he informed the government of his plans to leave by September 24.

"After BJP lost power in 2004, several of its leaders continued to occupy bungalows meant for ministers. When I have already informed them that I would leave by September 24, what was the need to cut power and water supply? I had written to the government seeking four months time to vacate the house. But there has been no response," Singh told .
