The secretary to the chief minister has reportedly written to the Ministry of Urban Development asking for a D-II, Type-V, three-bedroom flat for Arvind Kejriwal. The move comes after the allotment of two duplex flats on Bhagwan Dass Road led to controversy, leading to the CM declining to take up the accommodation.

“Since the CM wanted a house in his constituency and the Delhi government doesn’t have flats in the New Delhi constituency, we have sought help from the UD ministry.

As per the requirement, we have asked for a D-II , Type-V flat, which will essentially be a three-bedroom flat,’’ an official said. The Delhi government has asked for this matter to be kept under wraps after the controversy created over the CM’s earlier choice of duplex flats at Bhagwan Dass Road. This house has already been surrendered by the CM.

Kejriwal had announced his decision not to take up the two five-bedroom duplex flats, saying there was a lot of controversy over the new house.
