New Delhi: Union Home Minister Amit Shah on Tuesday shifted to his new residence — 6A, Krishan Menon Marg — in New Delhi, where late prime minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee earlier lived.
Shah's previous residence — 11, Akbar Road — has been allotted to Parliamentary Affairs Minister Pralhad Joshi.
Vajpayee had moved to the Krishna Menon Marg bungalow in 2004 after his government was voted out, and stayed there with his family for nearly 14 years. His family vacated the house in last November after his death in August.
According to sources, Shah had earlier visited the house in June and suggested some changes following which renovation work was started.
When Vajpayee had moved to the Krishna Menon Marg house, he had its municipal number changed from 8 to 6-A.
After the Modi government came to power in 2014, it was decided that no government bungalow previously occupied by a leader in Delhi would be converted into any memorial after their death.
The government has already built the 'Sadaiv Atal' memorial for Vajpayee, which is located near the Rashtriya Smriti Sthal, a place designated for the last rites of presidents, vice-presidents and prime ministers.
