Amit Shah shifts to Ex-PM Vajpayee’s bungalow

Union Home Minister Amit Shah today moved into former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s bungalow at Krishna Menon Marg in central Delhi. He was earlier staying at a bungalow in Akbar Road.

The Home Minister was allotted Vajpayee’s bungalow after the BJP came back into power for a second successive term. The Krishna Menon Marg bungalow was lying vacant after the former prime minister’s death last year. The house-warming ceremony took place on August 15.

Last week, all former MPs were asked to vacate their government accommodations- mostly the heritage bungalows in the posh Lutyen’s zone. With overstaying being the norm, the government took a hard line and gave the MPs a deadline of seven days to vacate the homes. Their power and water supply was cut within three days.

According to rules, MPs have to vacate their bungalows within a month of dissolution of the Lok Sabha. The 16th Lok Sabha was dissolved on May 25 and all the bungalows should have been vacated by June 25.
