No five star accommodation for MPs of 17th Lok Sabha

New Delhi: Unlike the past, the new members of the 17th Lok Sabha will not get accommodation in five star hotels but will be put up in the Western Court premises of Delhi and bhavans of various states.

“Around 300 rooms have been arranged along with other extensive facilities to render all possible assistance to the Members of Parliament (MPs) so that they do not face any inconvenience when they arrive in the national capital,” Lok Sabha Secretary General Snehlata Shrivastava told reporters here on Wednesday.

“The newly-elected members will be accommodated in the Western Court and its newly-built Annexe and various state bhavans. Thus, the Lok Sabha Secretariat has done away with the system of transit accommodation in hotels,” Shrivastava said.
