AICC Committee divested its General Secretary Digvijay Singh

Hyderabad:2/8/17: The All India Congress Committee on Tuesday divested its General Secretary Digvijay Singh of his responsibilities as the person in charge of party affairs in Telangana, and assigned the job to RC Khuntia, who will be assisted by AICC secretary Satish Jarkiholi.

The change of guard has evoked a mixed bag of reactions from State Congress leaders. While some senior leaders are of the view that it would help the party in charting a new direction and becoming “more aggressive”; another section says that the new general secretary in charge of the state party has an uphill task.

They point out that Khuntia, who was supposed to assist Digvijay Singh in the past, had never played an active role, though his attention was drawn to several issues pertaining to the State unit.  The result was that things did not improve.

Kuntia, they aver, used to just come to the Telangana state time and again en route to his native place –Odisha.
