Rahul Gandhi gives party posts to younger MPs

New Delhi: The stamp of Congress vice president Rahul Gandhi was evident in the All India Congress Committee reshuffle announced Sunday, as important posts went to relatively younger MPs.

Mumbai MP Priya Dutt, 46, will assist former union minister Ajay Maken, who has been given charge of the party’s communications and publicity.

Haryana MP Ashok Tanwar, 37, who had been assisting party general secretary Mohan Prakash in affairs relating to Gujarat, has been handed charge of poll-bound Rajasthan, besides Dadar and Nagar Haveli.

Similarly, Rajasthan MP Harish Chaudhary, 43, who had been given charge of Punjab as secretary recently, has now been given additional charge of poll-bound Delhi.

Both Delhi and Rajasthan are ruled by the Congress and would have assembly polls by the end of this year.

Soon after he became party vice president in January this year, Rahul Gandhi had said that the party would see an organisational reshuffle to mix youth and experience.
