In a major organizational reshuffle, former Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot has replaced Congress veteran Janardan Dwivedi as the AICC general secretary in charge of organisation and training.
The rejig was approved by Congress Chief Rahul Gandhi.
n another of the organizational changes, Rahul Gandhi also appointed Rajeev Satav and Jitendra Singh as in-charge of the party’s affairs in Gujarat and Odisha respectively.
This is being seen as Rahul Gandhi’s way of encouraging young leaders to emerge out.
It need be mentioned that Janardan Dwivedi was considered a political heavyweight and a close confidante of former party chief Sonia Gandhi.
Dwivedi would step down as party general secretary which he has been for over two decades.
