Congress rejoices on Capt. Amarinder return

Former Punjab Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh is the new president of Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee. All India Congress Committee president Sonia Gandhi cleared his name for appointment on Tuesday.

His name figures in the list of 18 state presidents released by the party high command. Amarinder had earlier headed PPCC before the 2002 elections, which the Congress won and he became the Chief Minister.

Though there were many aspirants for the post, Amarinder was the only choice as far as his capability to lead the party for 2012 Assembly elections is concerned, according to political observers, who feel he is the only Congress leader who can take on Shiromani Akali Dal president and Deputy Chief Minister Sukhbir Singh Badal in the Vidhan Sabha polls. Outgoing president Mohinder Singh Kaypee may be adjusted at the Centre, sources hinted.
