Lucknow: Beating all superstitions, Uttar Pradesh Livestock, Minor Irrigation and Fishery Minister SP Singh Baghel chose the last day of Navratra to move in what considered to be the jinxed official bungalow at 6, Kalidas Marg to overcome the superstitious thoughts. He shifted to his new residence, next to Chief Minister's official residence 5, Kalidas Marg, with his family after performing the Grahpravesh rituals.

There have been lots of strange stories attached to this house which remained vacant as nobody came forward to take this bungalow. It is believed that this bungalow brought miseries in the form of political adversities, misfortune, jail, and grave illness to the dwellers.

It could be mentioned here that earlier occupants of this bungalow namely Amar Singh, Waqar Ahmed Shah, Babu Singh Kushwaha, etc. and top bureaucrats like Pradeep Shukla and Neera Yadav had to go through a lot of misfortunes in various form. Either they ended up with political stigma or a decline in political fortunes, jail or grave illness.

According to Baghel, he decided to move in despite knowing fully well about this and hoped to reverse the earlier stigma attached to this House.

  • He was put behind bars in 2011 for cash for vote scam.

Neera Yadav and Pradeep Shukla:

  • The top bureaucrats also faced negativities while residing in that bungalow.
  • Former UP Chief Secretary and Mission Director of NRHM in UP, Pradeep Shukla was sent to jail by CBI.

Javed Abdi:
