Kejriwal moves back to Kaushambi house
AAP chief Arvind Kejriwal Tuesday moved back to his apartment in Kaushambi here, as he had to vacate his Tilak Lane residence before July 31, a party leader said.
As Delhi's chief minister, Kejriwal shifted to a Tilak Lane house from his apartment, but after resigning from the post in February, he sought some time to stay in the house due to his daughter's examinations.
The Aam Aadmi Party leader wanted his official residence to be transferred in his wife Sunita's name when she was elevated to the rank of commissioner of income tax and was eligible for such an accommodation.
But the Tilak Lane residence could not be transferred in his wife's name.
Party leaders said Kejriwal searched for several other accommodations in Delhi, but that did not work out.
He finally decided to return to his old residence at apartment No.403 in Girnar Tower of Kaushambi. The party also has its office in the same locality.
Kejriwal's belongings reached the apartment Monday, and he moved back in Tuesday, said AAP spokesperson Deepak Vajpayee.
Ghaziabad police, meanwhile, said they have no instruction on providing security to any VIP in the area.
"We shall put a security cover (for Kejriwal) if we receive orders from seniors. Till now, we have no such plan," said Inspector Rashid Ali of Indirapuram police station.
