Tejaswi Yadav reprimanded the legislators of his party Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) who have “claimed” official bungalows that are yet to be allotted. Yadav issued a stern warning that the mandate given by the people made it the responsibility of everyone in the party to safeguard its image, reports The Telegraph.

The younger son of Lalu Prasad was speaking at the first meeting of RJD MLAs and office-bearers after the election victory.

I have learnt that some of our MLAs have forcefully occupied official bungalows. I don’t understand why some of our MLAs are in a hurry. This gives a bad name to the party and tarnishes its reputation. All the MLAs will get homes and those who don’t will get funds from the government so they can rent a house for themselves. The legislators should refrain from such actions at any cost.
Tejaswi Yadav, Bihar Deputy Chief Minister

It was reported on Tuesday how at least two RJD MLAs, Arun Kumar Yadav and Anil Kumar Yadav, have staked their claim on bungalows of outgoing legislators by getting their nameplates fixed without any official sanction.
