In a special gesture, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday visited his predecessor Manmohan Singh to make a courtesy call.

Modi, who was sworn-in yesterday and took charge this morning, drove to 3, Motilal Nehru Place, the new abode of Singh, to meet him this evening.

He was received by Singh and his wife Gursharan Kaur who shifted to the new residence after attending the swearing-in ceremony of Modi at the Rashtrapati Bhawan last evening, vacating 7, Race Course Road, his official residence for 10 years.

Sources described Modi’s visit to Singh’s place as a courtesy call.

Modi has not yet moved into the Race Course Road residence and is staying put in Gujarat Bhawan. He is likely to shift a few days later as the new residence is being refurbished, according to sources.
