Party in poor state in NG Ranga's native place Ponnur (Guntur): Former MLC and Ponnur constituency Congress party in-charge Rayapati Srinivas on Sunday held local leaders responsible for disappearance of the party in Ponnur, native place of Congress stalwart late Acharya NG Ranga. He was reacting to the concerns of the activists on the pathetic state of the party. Addressing the meeting of the party workers here, he said it was sad that the party with great historic background failed to arrange for its office in the town. The party was totally wiped out from the constituency for two decades. The local leaders should be blamed for the poor state of affairs in the party. Faulty leadership had turned the Congress citadel of Ponnur into shelter for anti-national elements, he lamented. He readily agreed to the request of the cadres to immediately open party office in the town. Rayapati claimed that crisis for Congress was over in Ponnur ever since his elevation to the in-charge post. He would respect the sentiments of activists. Views of every party worker would be taken into consideration to rebuild the party from the ruins, he said. He appealed to the activists to carry out extensive campaign on the welfare programmes implemented by the Kiran Kumar Reddy government in the State and Congress chief Sonia Gandhi-led United Progressive Alliance government at the Centre to secure victory for the party in 2014 elections. It was the development achieved by these governments that would pave the way for party's success, he exuded confidence.
