New Delhi, Aug 1 (IANS) The Congress on Tuesday divested party General Secretary Digvijaya Singh of responsibilities as in-charge of the party affairs in Telangana and assigned the job to R.C. Khuntia.
“Congress President Sonia Gandhi has approved a new AICC team to look after the party affairs in Telangana. Digvijaya Singh has been relieved of the responsibilities as the General Secretary in-charge of Telangana,” a party release said.
Khuntia will be assisted in his task by Satish Jarkiholi as the party Secretary, the release added.
Earlier in April, Digvijaya Singh was replaced as the in-charge of poll-bound Karnataka as well as Goa, where the Congress failed to form a government despite emerging as the single-largest party.
