Leader of Opposition in the Madhya Pradesh Assembly Ajay Singh, who was accused by his estranged mother of throwing her out of the family bungalow, has told a court here that she can live with him and he is ready to take care of her.
Saroj Singh, wife of late former Union minister Arjun Singh, moved the court in June accusing her sons, Ajay and Abhimanyu Singh, of mistreating her and evicting her from Kerwa Koti, which was built by her husband.
"She can live with me at Kerwa Koti or any other bungalow and I am ready to be her caregiver," the Congress leader said in his affidavit submitted to Judicial Magistrate Gaurav Pragyanan yesterday.
She had filed the petition under the Protection of Women from Domestic Violence Act.
Ajay Singh had refuted the allegation, stating that his mother had become a pawn in the hands of certain persons and was being misled.
Saroj Singh is currently living in Noida, according to her petition.
The magistrate took the affidavit on record and scheduled the next hearing for August 7.
