Bengal BJP chief Dilip Ghosh moves to 12-room sprawling flat, NKDA sends notice to flat owner-developer
West Bengal Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) chief Dilip Ghosh’s new home is attracting a lot of attention these days. Earlier this week, Ghosh moved to a 12-room sprawling flat in Rajarhat, in the northern fringes of Kolkata. The flat has several kitchens, a sprawling living-dining space, apart from 12 rooms.
Ghosh has been living in an apartment in Salt Lake on rent, and the new place is owned by a developer and owner of a nursing home in Kolkata. Ghosh won’t be required to pay any rent for this flat, he was quoted saying. The owner of the flat, who is also the developer of the building complex, used to live in the flat earlier, and has now handed it over to Ghosh for him to stay there.
However, the New Town Kolkata Development Authority (NKDA) has sent a notice to the flat’s developer, asking him to report to one of their officials regarding the documents relating to the flat and the building complex.
According to BJP insiders, Ghosh has nearly 20 security personnel accompanying him on duty in shifts. It was difficult for them to live close to where Ghosh was living, and this new arrangement will be convenient from that perspective. Moreover, there were some rent-related problems in the Salt Lake apartment where he was living earlier.
The BJP chief has shifted to several houses over the past few years. Earlier, he lived in Kadapara near Subhas Sarovar. From there, he first moved to a rented flat in Rajarhat and then to another rented accommodation in Salt Lake’s CL Block. From there, he moved to the new 12-room flat Rajarhat on Monday.
