Vajpayee moves to new home

After spending nearly six years at 7, Race Course Road, former prime minister Atal Behari Vajpayee moved to his new residence at 6-A Krishna Menon Marg Sunday.

Prime Minister Dr Manmohan Singh, however, did not move to 7, Race Course Road immediately as expected. The Central Public Works Department will carry out renovations after consulting Dr Singh and his family.

Vajpayee moved to the new residence soon after returning from his two-day visit to his parliamentary constituency, Lucknow. His belongings and other paraphernalia were shifted from 7 RCR, late last evening. Eight trucks were hired to shift his belongings, which include a large collection of books.

Delhi Police has already put in place elaborate security arrangements. Five PCR vans and commandos have been deployed on Krishna Menon Marg.
