After the city witnessed heavy rain on Thursday, part of the roof of the Congressional District (Rural) Committee office collapsed in the early hours of Friday. The seven-decade-old office building is located near the clock tower and the roof was made of bricks and iron beams. According to the information, water had been flowing from it for a few days.

In charge of the office and secretary general of the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC), Komal Khanna, said he was happy that the roof collapsed overnight as a large number of workers and party leaders surrendered during the day and that there could have been a serious accident.

“I found out when I opened the office on Friday morning around 9am. Neighbors told me the roof collapsed around 2:30 a.m. upon hearing the thud. No one was hurt, but the furniture was damaged,” Khanna said.

The offices of the urban and rural district congress committee are in poor condition and the party has been working on various proposals for relocation or renovation.
