New Delhi: There is a flurry of activity at two of the VIP bungalows in the Lutyen's Zone of the national capital, with one preparing to bid farewell to its special guest of 10 years while the other is being decked up to welcome its new resident.
A sprawling bungalow at 3, Motilal Nehru Road, will now be the new abode of Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, once he retires after Lok Sabha elections and the PMO said that the work is almost completed at the new address where he is to move in.
“The Motilal Nehru Road bungalow is almost ready to move in. Shifting of stuff from the official residence to the new place is underway. Lot of stuff has been shifted and more is on its way,” Media Adviser to Prime Minister Singh, Pankaj Pachauri, told PTI.
“Prime Minister's wife Gursharan Kaur has herself been visiting the new bungalow to oversee the work being done there,” he said.
A new sentry post has been erected at the main entrance while inside, horticulture staff are busy manicuring the lawns. Stone slabs and other raw materials were also seen being wheeled into the premises. Work on putting up the security cabin at the main gate is also underway.
