Sachin Pilot appointed Rajasthan Congress chief

New Delhi, Jan.13 : The Congress Party has appointed Union Minister for Corporate Affairs Sachin Pilot as the new president of the Rajasthan Pradesh Congress Committee.


The annoucement was made by party general secretary Janardan Dwivedi in New Delhi today.

The 36-year-old Minister for Corporate Affairs is a close associate of party Vice President Rahul Gandhi and is the son of late Union Minister Rajesh Pilot and Rama Pilot, who was also MP for a term.

He replaces incumbent Chandrabhan, who was defeated in the Assembly polls.

Pilot's appointment as PCC chief comes a month after the party's poor performance in the desert state.

The Congress could secure just 21 out of the 200 Assembly seats in Rajasthan, leading to the exit of the Ashok Gehlot-led Congress government.
