Chandigarh: Contrary to public perception of our elected representatives getting the best of everything, here is a former MLA who has literally been forced to live on the streets in Hoshiarpur.
As per information received here, Bahujan Samaj Party former MLA Shingara Singh Sahoongra has been living on the streets along with his family for the past few days. Passersby first mistook him for sitting on a Dharna but that was not the cause of his plight. The Sahoongras have, in fact, been driven out of their residence by the district administration along with their household goods!
Administration officials said that the ex-MLA had been living in Government quarters for the past 25 years without paying any rent. They said that whenever the administration officials went to the house to get him evicted, the ex-MLA turned his dogs loose on them. Sahoongra on the other hand says that the he had been a MLA from 1992 to 2002 and had been living in the Government quarters since that time.
