The search for a house for Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) convener Arvind Kejriwal is set to continue after AAP leaders confirmed that he would not move into the Civil Lines home offered to him by Naren Bhiku Ram Jain. Last week, a day after Kejriwal confirmed that he would move into the 4B Flagstaff Road, Naren Jain’s brother, Virender Jain, moved a petition in the Delhi High Court claiming 50 per cent ownership of the property.
AAP sources said Kejriwal would not move into the home because of the legal complications.
“The extension which he received for the Tilak Marg house finishes by the end of July, and this legal issue is unlikely to be solved by then. We did not know of the ownership struggles within the Jain family when the home was accepted. A search is on for another house which he will move into by July-end,” an AAP leader said.

Leaders said Kejriwal’s wife, who is an Revenue Service officer, is also eligible for an official residence, and moving back to Kaushambi was an option.
“Before moving to Tilak Marg, he used to stay at his wife’s official accommodation at the IRS officers colony in Kaushambi. She gave up the flat when they moved to Tilak Marg. Going back to that house is a possibility,” an AAP leader said.
Another possibility opened up on Monday after the New Delhi Municipal Council passed a proposal which ensures accommodation for members of the Council who are elected as MPs and MLAs. According to NDMC Act, 2011, the MP from the New Delhi Parliamentary constituency and the MLAs of the New Delhi and Cantonment Assembly constituencies automatically become members of the civic body.
However, the Home Ministry needs to approve the decision.
While Kejriwal, the MLA from the New Delhi Assembly constituency, has not applied for a house under this criteria yet, AAP officials said the idea would be considered “if something concrete comes up”.
