New Delhi: The Government has officially asked the Nehru Memorial Museum and Library (NMML) to look into the “feasibility of executing the idea" of setting up a museum on all Indian prime ministers. NMML will now have to oversee all aspects of “possibility” of setting up such a museum and “smooth execution of this idea”.

Among others who attended the meeting included Minister of State for External Affairs M J Akbar and Congress leaders Jairam Ramesh, Mallikarjun Kharge and Karan Singh along with Rajya Sabha MP Swapan Dasgupta.
The source in NMML society who attended the meeting said that land and heritage laws will are issues which need to be settled before the society makes any concrete recommendations.
“Since it is imagined to be permanent museum of past and future prime ministers, NMML is going to work on aspects that can make a museum of the future.” says a member of the society.
