Presidents of all Pradesh Congress Committees will continue in their posts :Rahul Gandhi

Newdelhi:6/1/18; The rival faction in state unit Congress rallying for change of guard in the Odisha Pradesh Congress Committee (OPCC) will have to put a lid on discontent for the time being as AICC President has ruled out any such possibility.

The Congress President Rahul Gandhi, who had been sitting over the decision since months, has sprung the surprise by not going for an organisational overhaul, seemingly buoyed by the recent Gujarat Assembly election results.

The Congress President Shri Rahul Gandhi has taken a decision that the Presidents of all Pradesh Congress Committees, Regional Congress Committees and Territorial Congress Committees will continue in their posts after the Organisational Election also unless some decision is taken to replace them,” AICC General Secretary Janardan Dwivedi said in a release today.

Several senior leaders in the state had been pitching for former minister Niranjan Patnaik as the favoured candidate for the top post.
