Senior Congress leader and Rajya Sabha MP Ahmed Patel is the new treasurer of the party. He replaces Mr Motilal Vohra.

Patel, the once powerful political secretary of Sonia Gandhi, will replace Motilal Vora who has been appointed as general secretary in-charge of administration. Anand Sharma will be the new chairman of the party’s Foreign Cell.

The rejig in the old guard comes a month after Rahul nominated Congress Working Committee (CWC) dropping some senior faces that included Digvijaya Singh, Sushikumar Shinde and Janardhan Dwivedi. Patel’s appointment ahead of the next year’s general elections is being seen as an attempt by the Congress president to strike a balance between the old guard and the young turks in the party.

In July this year, Rahul constituted the Congress Working Committee, the party’s highest decision-making body.
