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.

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.
