Madan Mohan Jha, a member of the legislative council of Bihar, is appointed as the new PCC chief of Bihar Congress. In a press release by AICC on Monday, Akhilesh Prasad Singh is the new campaign committee chairman of Bihar. As per the release, Bihar Congress committee has now four new working presidents, Dr. Ashok Kumar, Kukab Quadri, Sameer Kumar Singh and Shyam Sunder (Dhiraj).
Madan Mohan Jha is a senior leader of Congress in the state and previously, he was a revenue minister in Nitish Kumar cabinet. The Congress party has also issued a fresh list for the entire working committee and advisory committee for Bihar.
After the previous PCC chief Ashok Chaudhury was removed from the post, it was remaining vacant for a long time. His appointment as new chief appears to suggest that the party is trying to woo its upper cast voters after his appointment. Jha is an upper caste Brahmin and was in charge of important departments in previous Nitish cabinet.
