The room in Parliament House that has in the past been held by former Prime Minister Atal Bihari Vajpayee and senior BJP leader LK Advani will be taken over BJP national JP Nadda.

Nadda had so far been using a room reserved for the leader of the Rajya Sabha.

Room number 4, which has witnessed hectic action in the past, was on Monday visited by Bharatiya Janata Party president JP Nadda and party leaders Bhupender Yadav and Arun Singh.

The BJP leaders spent some time and nostalgia-filled moments in the room. As they had tea, Nadda asked the staff about their well-being.

According to the staff which has for long been associated with the room, it was after a long time that BJP leaders spent time there and had tea. The staff was evidently happy to receive the visitors.

Following the visit of BJP leaders, the three plates outside the room - 'Atal Bihari Vajpayee', 'Chairman, National Democratic Alliance' and 'LK Advani' were removed.

Former PM Vajpayee, who passed away in August 2018, was chairman of NDA. Advani, who was Deputy Prime Minister when NDA was in power between 2000 and 2004, is no longer an MP.

Sources said that the room was allocated to NDA many years ago and was the office of Vajpayee and Advani.
