Rahul Gandhi Appoints Ashok Gehlot as Congress General Secretary”

Senior Congress leader Ashok Gehlot was on Friday appointed as the All India Congress Committee (AICC) General Secretary In-charge, Organisation, Training. The decision comes on the back of the recent appointment of Amit Chavda as president of Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee.

In another statement, Dwivedi said, "Congress President Rahul Gandhi has appointed Rajeev Satav, MP, as the AICC in charge of Gujarat with immediate effect".

Satav, an AICC secretary, had worked closely with Gehlot during the Gujarat Assembly elections in December where the Congress gave the BJP a tough fight, restricting it below the 100-seat mark.

Ironically, Gehlot himself had said that Congress President Rahul Gandhi was well within his rights to choose his own team.

Gehlot's appointment to a crucial organisational post in the AICC also paves the way for Rajasthan Congress chief Sachin Pilot to have a free hand in running the party affairs in the state.

Dwivedi, who is a senior functionary, held various positions in the party before becoming the general secretary in 2004. Gandhi's close aide Jitendra Singh, a former Union minister of state for home, replaces Hariprasad in Odisha where assembly polls are scheduled next year.

"The party appreciates the hard work and contribution of BK Hariprasad who will be stepping down from his responsibility as AICC General Secretary in-charge, Odisha", said a statement.

According to the Congress sources, the 66-year-old leader will now be given the charge of Rajasthan Assembly elections where he has already started campaigning.

The party also placed on record the hard work and contribution of Joshi, who is stepping down from his responsibility as chief organiser of Seva Dal.

The changes are part of a major restructuring of the Congress under Rahul Gandhi's leadership and indicate a generational shift which the new party chief is wanting.
