Harish Choudhary given charge of Punjab

Congress MP Harish Choudhary has been appointed national secretary of the All India Congress Committee and given charge of party affairs in Punjab or new Prabhari of Punjab. Choudhary is the MP from Rajasthan's Barmer. The other development in Punjab by congress high command on Tuesday is Pratap Singh Bajwa appointed as the new chief of its Punjab unit, replacing Capt Amarinder Singh. Bajwa, the party MP from Gurdaspur, has replaced Amarinder, Congress general secretary Janardhan Dwivedi said. Amarinder, a former chief minister, was under a cloud after the Congress failed to dislodge the Shiromani Akali Dal (SAD) in the January 2012 elections. The Congress recently lost the Moga bypoll, held after its sitting legislator resigned and joined the SAD.

Harish Choudhary is a first time MP who defeated Jaswant Singh’s politician son Manvendra. He was earlier an MLA. Harish won from a constituency which is the largest in the country.
