Nellore: Congress whip and 27th division corporator S. Penchala Reddy has alleged that Mayor P. Sailaja Reddy was hampering the development works in the city and tarnishing the image of the party.

Addressing newsmen on Tuesday on the occasion of the Congress completing three years in Nellore Municipal Corporation, the party whip said the corporators could not take up any works in their divisions due to the adamant attitude of the Mayor.

Though Chief Minister Y.S. Rajashekhara Reddy, Information and Public Relations Minister Anam Ramnarayana Reddy and MLA Anam Vivekananda Reddy had allotted funds for various development works in the city, the Mayor was deliberately creating hurdles in the execution of the works, he alleged.
