AICC faces space con­straint

Of­fice bear­ers at sea

Gfiles - - BRIC-A-BRAC -

The UPA was the big­gest votary of com­put­ers and in­ter­net but never thought it would came back to bite them. Con­gress has awak­ened, though late but it is bet­ter than never. The party web­site has been com­pletely re­vamped. Surf­ing the web­site in­di­cates that Rahul Gandhi means busi­ness. It’s the vir­tual face of the party but things on the ground are still shaky. Rahul Gandhi has re­vamped the party and re­con­sti­tuted the of­fi­cial setup. If one tries to count the list of the of­fice bear­ers, in-charge of var­i­ous de­part­ments, frontal or­gan­i­sa­tions, and elec­tion com­mit­tees, more than 100 names ap­pear on the web­site. In­sid­ers re­veal most of­fice bear­ers don’t come to 23 Ak­bar Road, the head­quar­ters of the party. Still, around 60 of­fice bear­ers visit the head­quar­ters every day and the place is al­ways crowded. Clearly, the AICC head­quar­ters has a space con­straint and can­not ac­com­mo­date all the of­fice bear­ers in the build­ing. Three of­fice bear­ers have been al­lot­ted one room. The rooms are small and cramped. So ei­ther the lead­ers are meet­ing work­ers at their home or out­side the of­fice or they search for va­cant rooms. Only Gen­eral Sec­re­taries have been al­lot­ted sep­a­rate rooms. There are many of­fice bear­ers who have not been al­lot­ted any place and that seems to have be­come their first pri­or­ity.
