The much talked about Congress rejig seems to be happening finally. A number of changes have been made, as a part of the restructuring, to ensure that the party is buckling up to challenge the biggest opposition BJP. Keeping the reshuffle in mind, Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi has already set the wheels in motion in Odisha after meeting with party leaders to finalise an organisational revamp in the state unit. INC also recently removed Digvijaya Singh as Goa in-charge after the senior leader failed to stitch an alliance and lost the state to BJP, despite being the majority party.
According to high-level sources, AICC General Secretary Kamal Nath is soon to be the Madhya Pradesh Congress chief (MPCC) in view of the upcoming election in Madhya Pradesh. Kamal Nath, who has been a member of INC for decades, has also served as general secretary from 2001–2004. He represents the Chhindwara constituency of Madhya Pradesh in the Lok Sabha.
The same sources mentioned the possibility of appointment of Mapanna Mallikarjun Kharge, who is the chairman of the Public Accounts Committee (PAC) as the Campaign Committee Chairman in Karnataka. Notably, Karnataka is one of the last few Congress strongholds and the party would like to retain in the state elections to be held in 2018. News within the Congress circles is that DK Shivakumar who currently is Minister for Energy in Karnataka is going to be Karnataka Congress chief for the upcoming elections in Karnataka.
