Raipur. Mohan Markam is appointed as Chhattisgarh Congress president . The Kondagaon MLA’s elevation to the post was approved Congress chief Rahul Gandhi.With his appointment, Markam has become the first tribal leader to head the party unit in the state.
Kondagaon MLA Markam succeeds Bhupesh Baghel, who last week said that he has asked Rahul Gandhi to appoint someone to head the state unit as he has his hands full as the chief minister. Bhupesh Baghel led the party to an emphatic win in the assembly polls Chhattisgarh in December, dislodging the BJP’s Raman Singh government winning 68 out of the 90 seats that went to the polls.
