New Delhi: Trinamool Congress' Mahua Moitra, who was expelled from Lok Sabha last week over corruption allegations, has been reportedly directed to vacate her official residence.

The housing committee of the Lok Sabha has written to the Urban Development Ministry to initiate the procedure to ask her to vacate her official residence. Ms Moitra was allotted the house by the ministry under special quota. According to the rule, a disqualified parliamentarian isn't entitled to a government accommodation, and is given a 30-day period to vacate the official bungalow.

Mahua's reaction to her expulsion

Mahua Moitra was expelled from the Lok Sabha on Friday following an Ethics Committee report into the 'cash for query' charges against her. After being expelled, Mahua Moitra gave a fiery speech in which she accused the Ethics Committee of lacking evidence against her.

When the decision was announced, apposition had also staged a walkout. Mahua Moitra on December 11 moved the Supreme Court against her expulsion from the Lok Sabha over 'Cash-for-Query' allegations.

Following her expulsion, Mahua Moitra said that the Ethics committee broke every rule.

Rahul was asked to vacate his bungalow in April

Similar situation was witnessed when Congress leader Rahul Gandhi was asked to vacate his government-allotted bungalow at 12, Tughlaq Lane by April 22, days after he stood disqualified as a Lok Sabha member. According to the rule, a disqualified parliamentarian isn't entitled to a government accommodation, and is given a 30-day period to vacate the official bungalow.

Here's a video of Rahul Gandhi's belongings being transported while he was vacating his house.

Here's what he had to say moments before he actually left his house in April this year.
