Re­tire­ment Homes

India Today - - UPFRONT -

Ra­jasthan Chief Min­is­ter Va­sund­hara Raje is en­sur­ing her op­po­nents stay put. She re­cently got a bill passed in the assem­bly that en­ti­tles ex­CMs to re­tain gov­ern­ment bun­ga­lows for life, along with the ret­inue of of­fi­cials. The bill re­placed a two­decade­old ex­ec­u­tive or­der sim­i­lar to the one by the UP gov­ern­ment that was re­jected by the Supreme Court last year. The big­gest ben­e­fi­ciary of Raje’s move will, of course, be her pre­de­ces­sor Ashok Gehlot, who stays in a gov­ern­ment house op­po­site her.
