In a bid to gear up the Congress cadre for the 2014 general election, PCC chief Botcha Satyanarayana is all set to undertake a tour of the state.
Talking to reporters soon after the Congress seniors’ meeting at Gandhi Bhavan on Friday, he said he would launch party membership enrolment in district headquarters and Assembly constituencies on Nov 14 and 19.
“Thereafter, I will tour every district to speed up the party membership enrolment process as well as strengthen the party at the grass roots level.
During my day-long visit to district headquarters, I will take part in the membership drive in the morning and address a public meeting in the evening,” he said.
According to him, his district tours will go in tandem with the Indiramma Bata of chief minister. Rs 8 lakh a month Spent on PCC HQ
HYDERABAD: Running a party headquarters seems to be not a small thing nowadays.
As much as Rs 7 lakh is being spent every month on the maintenance of Congress state headquarters, Gandhi Bhavan, here.
When minister Danam Nagender, who is also president of the Greater Hyderabad Congress Committee, sought the help of the PCC leadership to bear the expenses of party’s district and city wings, the PCC chief said that even the PCC leadership was finding it hard to run the state office whose maintenance required Rs 7 to 8 lakh every month.
But chief minister N Kiran Kumar Reddy was coming to the rescue of the PCC by bearing that expenditure, Satyanarayana said.
