Nalgonda: The double-storeyed district Congress office in Nalgonda without door railings and lack of maintenance has been crying for the attention of its leaders. The office is located in heart of the centre of business area Prakasham Bazar in Nalgonda one town.
Before Congress came to power in 1999 under the leadership of YS Rajashekhara Reddy, party office was in a kuccha state. In 1999, after party came to power, the leaders of the district congress party including Jana Reddy, Uttam Kumar Reddy, Komatireddy Venkat Reddy, Ramreddy Damoder Reddy and late Palvai Goverdhan Reddy came to know about the importance of construction of party office.
In this regard, the office building with an estimated cost of Rs 2 crore was started on the direction of local MLA Komtireddy Venkat Reddy under the leadership of then DCC president Mallesh Goud and the work was carried forward by his successor Tudi Devender Reddy. As per the design, a hall capacity of 500 members and a room for kitchen was constructed on the ground floor.
On the first floor, rooms for presidents of DCC and associated wings was conceptualized. However, they were left incomplete due to group politics. Tudi Devender Reddy failed to complete the building even after separate State came into existence.
Taking the advantage of the incomplete works, few people have been using it for anti-social activities. It has become a boozers’ paradise in the nights. Besides the main building, party office has open space which has a threat of encroachment. As there is no gate for boundary wall, cows and stray dogs have made the office their home.
Few Congress leaders and party senior workers who attended party’s 133rd Formation Day meeting in the party district office expressed their concern over the pity condition of the building. Second cadre leaders of the party have demanded the leaders to complete the building at least by next Formation Day.
