JAIPUR: Rajasthan high court on Monday issued a note to say main secretary Rajeeva Swarup to a contempt petition asserting breach of an earlier arrangement to acquire the bungalow allocated to former chief minister Vasundhara Raje vacated.
A division bench of justice Sabina and justice Chandra Kumar Songara granted an application filed by advocate Vimal Choudhary and impleaded Rajiv Swaroop as a party respondent in the contempt petition.
Choudhary reported the high court had directed the chief secretary to acquire the bungalow allocated to Vasundhara Raje vacated, but maintained that nothing had been done in the issue.
“Consequently I had no choice and filed a program for impleadment for a party. My program was enabled and Rajiv Swaroop was impleaded as a party respondent in the contempt petition,” Choudhary informed reporters.
“But, the primary secretary didn’t obey the arrangement of the high court… No note was issued to Vasundhara Raje so much,” Choudhary added.
Rajasthan high court had in September last year quashed provisions of a 2017 law under which former chief ministers were supplied rent-free government lodging and also a 10-member personnel for the remainder of their lives.
Advocate overall emerging on behalf of Swaroop hunted time for directions, and the courtroom popularized the issue for additional hearing on September 10.
