Six months after stepping down as Bihar's health minister, Tej Pratap vacated his government bungalow, claiming that "Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar and his deputy Sushil Modi unleashed ghosts" in the bungalow, reported Deccan Chronicle.

The bungalow was allotted to Tej Pratap Yadav after he became the health minister in the Nitish-led alliance government.

Bihar Deputy Chief Minister Sushil Modi had alleged that the petrol pump was fraudulently allotted to Tej Pratap during the UPA-II regime.

After nearly 20 months, Nitish Kumar parted ways with the RJD and formed an alliance with the BJP on July 27, last year. "The ghosts were haunting me". However, after the grand alliance of RJD, Kumar's Janata Dal (United) and the Congress collapsed in 2017, Pratap was among the many politicians who were asked to vacate the government bungalows.
