Modi, who was sworn-in on Monday and took charge on Tuesday morning, drove to 3, Motilal Nehru Road, the new abode of Singh, to meet him on Tuesday 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 on Monday 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.
