AICC faces space constraint
Office bearers at sea
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.
