Congress party led by Rahul Gandhi today put a big responsibility on the shoulders of undefeated and undebated leader of the party Kamalnath by appointing him Madhya Pradesh State President.The decision has sealed the much delayed reshuffle designed to challenge the ruling BJP in end-year state elections.Also party has appointed Jyotiraditya Scindia as campaign committee chief ahead of elections in the state expected later this year, said a statement from the party.
In Madgya Pradesh Shivraj Singh Chouhan is serving his third term as chief minister while Congress has been out of power in the state for 15 years.
Sources said what has worked in Nath’s favour is his seniority as well as the fact that he has been backed by a key pole of the factionalised unit — Digvijaya Singh.Congress believes that it has a good chance of returning to power in its erstwhile fort where it was ousted in December 2003 after Digvijaya Singh’s second tenure as CM. The party believes that anti-incumbency was proving a serious handicap for Chouhan government which was evident in Congress’s repeated victories in bypolls.
