After sweeping the Delhi Elections, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal is in search of a new house in the New Delhi constituency to run the government. According to sources, CM is looking forward to shifting in a house consisting of 3-4 bedrooms with lawn.
Presently CM Kejriwal is living in his house in Kaushambhi in Uttar Pradesh and wants to move quickly to the government colonies. “He is not interested in a big bungalow. He is keen on a small 3-4 bedroom house with a lawn where he could meet people who call on him,” an Aam Admi Party member said.
During his 49-day government, he was allotted The Tilak Lane bungalow. However, it is now granted to somebody else after CM Kejriwal resigned from his post. Following the morals and ethics on which party is based on, CM will not take the bungalow with unnecessary space to spare, however, he will look for a house large enough to carry on his office work from house and some official meetings too.
Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia will also acquire government house due to heavy homes. “We’ll definitely need a house for deputy chief minister Manish Sisodia. He has tremendous homes and will need space for his staff. Though he is yet to make his priorities clear, he will probably need a similar govt flat that was allotted to him in Mayur Vihar Phase II last year,” a senior AAP functionary said. During AAP government last year, Sisodia was given two flats in B-block in Mayur Vihar Phase 2.
Moreover, public works department (PWD) constructed six bungalows in 2013 near Raj Niwas in Civil Lines that are still vacant. Congress minister refused to shift into those bungalows due assembly elections. Thus, AAP ministers including health minister Satyendra Jain and food and civil supplies minister Asim Ahmed Khan may move into those bungalows.
