New Delhi: Delhi's Deputy Chief Minister Manish Sisodia will occupy a bungalow that once used to be the official residence of then Chief Minister Sheila Dikshit.

 

Union Urban Development Ministry today approved transfer of the bungalow No. AB-17 on Mathura Road to Delhi government for allotment to Sisodia.

 

Delhi government had made a request for transfering the bungalow to it and it has been done on exchange basis, a senior UD Ministry official said.

The Mathura Road bungalow is lying vacant since it was vacated recently by former Union Minister P Balaram Naik.

Dikshit, as Chief Minister, used to stay at the bungalow which is located just opposite Pragati Maidan for years before moving to bigger accommodation -- 3, Motilal Nehru Place.

At the same time, Delhi government is yet to seek bungalow accommodation for Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal, the UD ministry official said.
