Just over a month after taking over as the Chief Minister, Arvind Kejriwal today shifted to his new house located at Tilak Lane here. The address of his new ground-floor house is C-II/23 at Tilak Lane, near the Patiala House court. It is a corner flat with three bedrooms, two servant quarters and a common garage.
Since last evening all the belongings of his house were being shifted and today Kejriwal moved into the house with his entire family. Spread over almost 1,600 square feet, there is a lawn in front of the house, as specically demanded by the Chief Minister.
With Kejriwal shifting to his new house, the security in the area has been enhanced with large number of police personnel deployed in and around his house. Even the roads that leads to his house have been barricaded. Till now the family lived in an Indian Revenue Services flat allotted to Kejriwal's wife in Kaushambi, Ghaziabad.
A fresh search was initiated on January 10 when Secretary of the Ministry of Urban Development Sudhir Krishna had met Kejriwal at his office to discuss the issue of his house, after Kejriwal refused to move into the two adjacent five-bedroom duplex flats on Bhagwan Das Road allotted to him earlier following a controversy.
