Ajay Singh is Congress leader in MP assembly
New Delhi: The Congress party Wednesday appointed Ajay Singh, son of late union minister Arjun Singh, as leader of its legislature party in Madhya Pradesh.
A statement issued by the Congress said party president Sonia Gandhi "has approved the candidature of Ajay Singh as leader of the Madhya Pradesh Congress legislature party". He is the legislator from Churhat.
The appointment came days after the party appointed Tribal Affairs Minister Kanti Lal Bhuria the state party chief, replacing former central minister Suresh Pachauri.
The post of CLP leader had fallen vacant after the demise of Jamuna Devi in September last year.
