A House for Dr Sharma, After Kovind Moves to Rashtrapati Bhavan

Sharma is a Lok Sabha MP from Noida whose personal residence on the Delhi-Noida border is just 10 km from Parliament House. So quite naturally, whenever there is an accommodation crunch in the party, one turns to Mahesh Sharma.

As President elect Ram Nath Kovind shifts to Rashtrapati Bhavan on Tuesday afternoon, Tourism Minister Mahesh Sharma will finally have his house to himself. Kovind had moved into Sharma's official residence at 10, Akbar Road after being nominated by BJP as its President pick.

It is not the first time Sharma has had to shift to accommodate the President of India. He was allocated 10 Rajaji Marg after former President APJ Abdul Kalam's death.

The double storey heritage building was however chosen by the outgoing President Pranab Mukherjee as his post retirement abode. So Sharma decided to shift base to the Akbar Road bungalow of former Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar, who returned to Panjim as Goa Chief Minister earlier this year.

And just when Sharma thought he had settled down in the Lutyens' Bungalow on Akbar Road, he had to make way for Kovind for almost a month.

Sharma is a Lok Sabha MP from Noida whose personal residence on the Delhi-Noida border is just 10 km from Parliament House.

So quite naturally, whenever there is an accommodation crunch in the party, one turns to Mahesh Sharma.
