MP Sachin Tendulkar say's no to govt bungalow!

Sachin Tendulkar refused to take possession of 5, Tughlaq lane allotted to him in the capacity of being a Rajya Sabha MP saying he did not want to waste tax payers' money.

"I am not keen on staying in any government bungalow when I will be in Delhi for only a few days. I feel this would be a waste of tax payers money and it would be better if the bungalow is allotted to someone else who needs the bungalow more than me."

Sachin Tendulkar said that he would prefer to stay in a hotel in Delhi every time he is here. "For me the honour of being nominated as a Rajya Sabha MP matters much more than the perks and privileges like being given a government bungalow,"
