VIJAYAWADA: Rain water seeped into the newly constructed Andhra Pradesh Interim Government Complex (IGC) in Amaravati, housing the state's secretariat, barely a month after a similar incident in the same building sparked an inquiry by the Crime Investigation Department. 

The leak was reported from the fourth block of the IGC, which houses the Revenue Department, Water Resources Department and the chamber of the human resource development minister Ganta Srinivasa Rao. 

The building's maintenance staff were seen on their toes, mopping the floor.

On June 6, rain water had leaked into the chamber of the Leader of Opposition and YSR Congress chief YS Jaganmohan Reddy. Suspecting sabotage, Assembly Speaker Kodela Sivaprasada Rao had ordered an inquiry by the Crime Investigation Department (CID). The investigation report is pending.

Municipal administration minister P Narayana, who is also the vice-chairman of the Capital Region Development Authority (CRDA) that handled the construction works of the IGC said that the leaks are not a big issue and assured those concerned that the contractors will take up the repair works.

Meanwhile, YSRC MLA RK Roja expressed anxiety that the government might blame his party -- the YSR Congress -- for the leakage. "We will not be surprised, if chief minister N Chandrababu Naidu says that the YSR Congress leaders, who came to cast votes in the Presidential election had cut-off water pipelines, causing the leakage."

Monday's rains were caused by a depression in the Bay of Bengal.
