By appointing Uttarakhand former Chief Minister Harish Rawat as the general secretary in-charge in place of Asha Kumari, the Congress party high command has given a clear signal of the changes in the state organisational structure in the coming days.

Likely to placate disgruntled lot

The appointment has also paved the way for the announcement of the much-delayed new body of the Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee (PPCC). In the present set up, Sunil Jakhar is expected to continue as PPCC chief.

The replacement of the general secretary in-charge is being seen as a signal to senior party leadership in the state and the Congress government led by Capt Amarinder Singh. Sources in the party said outgoing general secretary Asha Kumari enjoyed a good equation with the Chief Minister, who would now have to deal with Rawat, a seasoned leaders who is close to the Gandhis.

The party leadership had been planning to replace Asha Kumari in the wake of various complaints against her from state party leaders. Rawat is likely to play a crucial role in roping in annoyed leaders like Navjot Singh Sidhu and Partap Singh Bajwa.
