Singhvi back as Congress spokesperson

The Congress on Friday brought back Abhishek Manu Singhvi as one of the leaders to put forward the party view in the electronic media.



New Delhi: The Congress on Friday brought back Abhishek Manu Singhvi, a former AICC spokesman mired in a controversial CD row, as one of the leaders to put forward the party view in the electronic media.

"He (Singhvi) has been brought back into the panel of leaders who participate (in debates) in the electronic media," AICC General Secretary Janardan Dwivedi told reporters here.

In April, Singhvi had resigned as party spokesperson and Chairman of Parliament`s Standing Committee on Personnel, Public Grievances and Law and Justice after a sleaze video allegedly involving him went viral on social media sites.

Subsequently, he was dropped from a list of leaders authorised by the Congress to participate in discussions on news channels.
The Congress has nominated some leaders, including Union ministers, party spokespersons and MPs, to participate in discussions and debated on television news channels.
