New Delhi: Former MP N Peethambara Kurup was Tuesday appointed as a Vice President of Kerala`s state Congress unit while two youth leaders were named as its general secretaries.

Congress General Secretary in-charge of organisation, Janardan Dwivedi, made the announcement in this regard.

The decisions on the appointments were taken by Congress President Sonia Gandhi a few months back after VM Sudheeran was made the Kerala PCC chief following incumbent Ramesh Chennithala`s induction as Home Minister into the Oommen Chandy-led UDF government in the state.
