No Change In OPCC Chief; Prasad To Continue Till 2019 Elections


Bhubaneswar: Senior Congress leader Prasad Harichandan will continue as the Odisha Pradesh Congress Committee (OPCC) President till 2019 elections, said OPCC Disciplinary Committee Chairperson Sandhya Rani Mohapatra today.

As the AICC President Rahul Gandhi did not accept his resignation, he will head the state unit of the grand old party, Sandhya Rani Mohapatra added.
Prasad Harichandan would continue to remain in his post as the PCC Chief as AICC President Rahul Gandhi is not in favour of changing the state party chief ahead of the 2019 general elections which is barely a year away, Sandhya Rani Mohapatra said in a statement.

Prasad Harichndan had tendered his resignation as the OPCC President following party’s humiliating performance in the recently concluded Bijepur assembly by-poll in Bargarh district where the party’s candidate Pranaya Sahu had even lost his deposit.
