SC should take sue-motto cognizance of allotting govt. bungalows to former CM in MP

Dear Editor,
It refers to media-reports about MP Chief Minister Kamal Nath providing government-bungalows to former Chief Ministers Digivijay Singh (Congress) and Shivraj Singh Chauhan (BJP) in Bhopal. Earlier recently retired Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chauhan subsequent to an order of MP High Court following Supreme Court verdict of 07.05.2018 misused his discretionary power of allotting government-bungalows to former BJP Chief Ministers Uma Bharti, Babulal Gaur, Kailash Joshi but not to Divijay Singh of Congress.
Chief Minister Kamal Nath in a bid to exhibit unbiased politics has provided government-bungalow simultaneously to his BJP predecessor Shivraj Singh Chauhan also, in order to provide one to Digvijay Singh of his own party Congress. It is clear that rival politicians unite on matters of mutual convenience.
Supreme Court should sue-motto take cognizance of the matter and undo the wrong done by extending its order of 07.05.2018 to all the states so that such undue facility may be snatched from all former Chief Ministers from various states. It is noteworthy that even the most advanced nation of the world USA with democratic governance of system provides just half of last-drawn salary to its former Presidents as the only post-retirement benefit, with former US Presidents even doing job in private establishment or engaged in farming etc after their retirement as most powerful political ruler of the world.
