Dear Editor,
It refers to new Union Home Minister reportedly moving to government-bungalow at 6A (formerly 8) Krishna Menon Marg (New Delhi) which was earlier residence for Atal Bihari Vajpayee in his capacity as former Prime Minister. Otherwise with wrong policies of Congress and UPA governments at the centre, Leyton Zone of New delhi by now would have been converted in Memorial Zone by converting government-bungalows as memorials of politicians having died at those government-bungalows. It was NDA government led by Atal Bihari Vajpayee which through cabinet-decision in the year 2000 passed for not converting any more government-bungalow in memorial thus firmly rejecting forced demand of Ajit Singh to convert government-bungalow at 12 Tuglaq Road (New Delhi) as memorial of his father Charan Singh.
Central government should get government-bungalow numbers 6 Krishna Menon Marg (New Delhi) and composite unit of bungalow-numbers 12, 14 and 16 at Gurudwara Rakabganj Road (New Delhi) vacated by cancelling lease of these bungalows. UPA government had succumbed to demands of the then Lok Sabha Speaker Meira Kumar and BSP Supremo Mayawati to indirectly convert these bungalows as memorials for Babu Jagjiwanram and Kashiram respectively by giving these on long lease to trusts managed by Meira Kumar and Mayawati after forcefully keeping these properties occupied against se norms.
Enquiry should be made and guilty ones exposed and punished who allowed violation of rules in regard to large-scale structural changes at composite unit of bungalow-numbers 12, 14 and 16 at Gurudwara Rakabganj Road (New Delhi) where rules for Leyton Zone does not permit even minor changes in government-bungalows in New Delhi.
