Luizinho Faleiro will continue as AICC in-charge of other northeastern states except Tripura and Manipur
Congres MP Gaurav Gogoi has been appointed as in-charge of Tripura and Manipur by party’s interim President Sonia Gandhi on Monday.
Gogoi will handle his new post along with his current responsibilities as in-charge of West Bengal and Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Congress general secretary KC Venugopal said in a statement.
He has succeeded Luizinho Faleiro, who was was in-charge of the 7 North Eastern States of Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Sikkim, Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland and Tripura.
However, Faleiro will continue as general secretary in-charge of other north-eastern states.
The AICC has taken the decision to remove Faleiro from the party responsibility in Tripura in the wake of Pradyot Manikya Debbarman resigning as Tripura Pradesh Congress Committee (TPCC) president and leaving the party alleging Faleiro’s interference in Tripura.
