New Delhi, June 11: BJP's senior most leader LK Advani has got back his old room number 4 in Parliament House, where he used to sit for five years as the NDA chairperson.

The government restored the room to Advani on Tuesday, days after indications of his possible dislocation from the room.

The nameplate of the 86-year-old leader was restored outside room number 4 in Parliament House. However, the nameplate, did not have his earlier designation of Working Chairman of the National Democratic Alliance (NDA).

Advani also sat in his original room for some time; his staff occupied their seats too.

The development came after Parliamentary Affairs Minister M Venkaiah Naidu intervened in the matter and ensured there was enough room for the party leader, who appeared visibly upset last week following the "removal" of his nameplate.

Advani had, in an apparent display of his displeasure, occupied the eighth row in the Lok Sabha during the oath-taking ceremony of MPs last week and chose to take rest in the BJP Parliamentary Party office which is generally used by ordinary party leaders even though he continues to be the chairman of BJP Parliamentary Party.

There is no clarity on his continuing as NDA working chairman, even though he continues to be chairman of the BJP Parliamentary Party.
