NELLORE: With the ACB officials conducting raids on Mayor N. Bhanusri's house here on Tuesday, the internal dissidence between the ruling Congress party leaders once again surfaced in Nellore district.

The Anam group supporters openly blamed Zilla Parishad Chairman Kakani Goverdhan Reddy and Survepalli MLA Adala Prabhakar Reddy for the recent developments in Municipal Corporation of Nellore (MCN) and criticised them for destabilising the party in the district.

In a press conference organised here on Wednesday, City Congress president Chatla Narasimha Rao, corporators Samdhani Basha, Sannapureddy Penchal Reddy and other leaders alleged that the raids on Mayor's house was a handiwork of some Congress party leaders in the district.

Mr. Basha alleged that the ZP Chairman and MLA Adala Prabhakar Reddy, who are earning some crores of rupees by doing contract works, are trying to defame Anam brothers by targeting the Mayor. The Congress corporators threatened to throw them out from the party if they did not mend their ways. They came down heavily on TDP and CPI (M) leaders for making false allegations against Anam brothers and the Mayor.
