The Delhi High Court on Thursday refused to intervene in Chirag Paswan's eviction from the property that his late father Ram Vilas Paswan had been assigned.

Justice Yashwant Varma dismissed the suit filed by Chirag Paswan's mother, Reena Paswan, saying that at this point, it will have to freeze the process that has already begun and that the premises were not his "party headquarters."

The petitioner's lawyer requested four months from the court to evacuate the premises in Janpath, in the centre of the city, citing "practical difficulties" and claiming that hundreds of people, including family members, were now sleeping there.

The current inhabitants of the bungalow, according to the petitioner's counsel, have no other place to dwell in the national capital, and the bungalow has a museum dedicated to late Ram Vilas Paswan, as well as various artefacts.

"This is not your party's headquarters," Justice Varma stated emphatically.

The process began in 2020, according to the judge, and the parties were given notice of it.

"Move out, sir," says the narrator. "The procedure has begun...," the court told the petitioner's attorney.

Other folks are waiting," he added.

According to Additional Solicitor General Chetan Sharma, the eviction procedure has already begun, and the occupants have been given notice multiple times since 2020.

"It's finished. There are very few home objects left. We've already started. It's almost finished and completed. Five trucks have already departed "he stated

He added that the term of the bungalow's allotment ended with the late politician's death in October 2020.

The central government dispatched a team on Wednesday to evict the Lok Sabha MP from the Janpath mansion, which was allegedly set aside for Union ministers.

After the death of former Union minister Ram Vilas Paswan, the Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) divided into two factions, with Chirag Paswan and his uncle Pashupati Kumar Paras fighting for control of the party.

It was frequently used for organising meetings and other relevant events for the party. PTI ADS SA is a company based in South Africa.
