New Delhi. The Congress on Monday appointed former Union minister Kumari Selja as the party’s general secretary and in-charge of Chhattisgarh. The Congress has made former Deputy Chief Minister of Punjab Sukhjinder Singh Randhawa the party in-charge of Rajasthan. Rajya Sabha member Shakti Singh Gohil has been appointed party in-charge of Haryana. According to a release issued by Congress General Secretary KC Venugopal, party president Mallikarjun Kharge made these appointments.

Selja, former president of Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee, has been made in-charge of Chhattisgarh in place of PL Punia. Randhawa has been made Rajasthan in-charge in place of Ajay Maken. In view of the confrontation between Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and former Deputy Chief Minister Sachin Pilot, it will be a big challenge for Randhawa to solve various issues by keeping the party united in Rajasthan.

Maken had offered to quit the post of in-charge in the month of September on the sidelines of the Congress Legislature Party meeting in Jaipur over the developments related to a parallel meeting by the MLAs supporting Gehlot. Randhawa has also been made a member of the Congress Steering Committee.

According to the report, this post given by the Congress high command to Kumari Selja before Rahul Gandhi’s padyatra in Haryana is considered politically important. Rahul Gandhi’s Bharat Jodo Yatra will enter Haryana from Rajasthan on 21 December. Apart from this, assembly elections are also going to be held in Chhattisgarh next year. Kumari Selja will have an important role in the Chhattisgarh Assembly. Please tell that Kumari Selja has also been the chairperson of the screening committee of the Congress in Rajasthan.
