All family-members of former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi including Sonia Gandhi, Priyanka Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi are allotted spacious government-bungalows in prime areas of Leyton Zone of Delhi. There is a deployment of heavy-security forces separately for these three and also for the government-bungalows allotted to them. When such high level of costly security is provided to all the three for the common reason of them being the family-members of late Rajiv Gandhi, then all the three together with their family-members should reside in the hugely spacious government-bungalow allotted to Sonia Gandhi even though Rahul Gandhi may be entitled for a separate government-bungalow for being a Parliamentarian like his mother. Austerity demands that Sonia Gandhi may take initiative in this regard which will largely reduce expenses on security for three government-bungalows. Even security-requirements will go down in case of any member of the trio visiting the other family-member.
It is unfortunate that some entitled ones are misusing the allotment of government-bungalows when one bungalow is practically needed for more than one family-member; such situation happened when the mother and the wife of former vice president Krishna Kant preferred two separate bungalows with an approach-way opened between the two bungalows. A survey should be made and common family-members can be allotted one single government-bungalow as per entitlement.
