Not aware of dispute over house: Kejriwal

Aam Aadmi Party convener Arvind Kejriwal on Tuesday said he was not aware of the dispute between two brothers over the house in Delhi's Civil Lines area which he has identified for taking on rent.

"I am not aware of the issue (the legal dispute) over the house. The house was being offered to me by Naren Jain," Kejriwal said.

The AAP leader had zeroed in on the house at No.4B Flagstaff Road in North Delhi and was told that the property belongs to Naren Jain.

However, Jain's brother, Virendra, has claimed that there is a dispute over the property between him and his siblings and the matter is in court. He has pointed out that the house cannot be rented out without the court's orders.

"The property is under dispute and Delhi High Court has given an order that status quo should be maintained. Under this, the property cannot be rented out to anybody whereas my brother has already decided to rent it out. This is a clear violation of the court's order," Virendra said, adding that he will approach the court in this regard.

But Naren said that, "The court has indeed asked us to maintain the status quo. Under this, we cannot sell or dispose of the property, but we can certainly give it on rent." The search for a house for Kejriwal began after he decided to vacate his government accommodation on Tilak Road where he had continued to stay even after resigning from the Delhi chief minister's post.

He had informed authorities that he would move out in July after the completion of his daughter's exams and pay rent for the house at market rates.
