Kannur district Congress president sells off his house to raise money for party

Kannur: In an unprecedented move, District Congress Committee President of Kannur Satheesan Pacheni has sold his house to raise money for the construction of Congress District Committee office, which is under construction. Pacheni sold his house for 38 lakh to pay the debt of 39 lakh rupees for party office.

DCC president has built his house five years ago at the cost of 40 lakh rupees. However, his party has promised to repay the loan amount.

Congress office in the district has been under construction for years and kept getting delayed due to various local reasons. Satheesan who is a district president has promised to build a new office building after he assumed the chair. But due to financial crisis within the organisation, the construction got delayed.

The Congress Party has given half the amount to the contractor for the construction which needed 39 lakhs. The party took up the construction later and removed the contractor. A team of building committee led by its chairman K Sudhakaran decided to seek help from the well-wishers to complete the construction. They all collected around 19 lakh and later the President sold off his house to pay the remaining amount.

After the assessment of the 14 DCC presidents in Kerala based on a secret survey, Satheeshan Pacheni along with 11 others are in Group B. Only two DCC president who is the best performer came under A category.

Satheeshan Pacheni has assumed the office along with 13 other DCC presidents two years ago.

Meanwhile, this new office building which is three-storeyed has all the latest facilities including a video conferencing room, and its construction is ongoing. The new Congress office is likely to be inaugurated by January 26, 2019.
