Prime Minister Narendra Modi, accompanied by other Bhartiya Janta Party (BJP) leaders, laid the foundation for the ruling party’s new headquarters in Delhi on Thursday.

BJP national president Amit Shah was also present at the event, as the PM laid the foundation stone for the 70-room building on Deen Dayal Upadhyay Marg in the national capital.

The new party office is set to be a hi-tech, eco-friendly building on an 8,000-square-metre plot with 70 per cent green area.

The new headquarters is being built barely 5 km from the party’s present national headquarters, at 11 Ashoka Road in Lutyens’ Delhi, which the BJP leadership feels is now inadequate for a rapidly growing organisation.

The new building is expected to be inaugurated in another two years on Atal Bihari Vajpayee’s birthday — December 25.

While the party had initially prepared a plan to build a new office during Nitin Gadkari’s tenure as the party chief, the leadership had rejected the first two plans.
