Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Friday constituted three committees to contemplate and talk about points and insurance policies associated to financial system, overseas affairs and nationwide safety.
Based on a press launch issued by Congress normal secretary in-charge of organisation KC Venugopal, former prime minister Manmohan Singh will head all of the three committees.
Other than Singh, the committee on financial affairs could have former union ministers P Chidambaram, Mallikarjun Kharge and Jairam Ramesh, who will even be its convenor, in addition to former Madhya Pradesh chief minister Digvijaya Singh.
Within the committee of overseas affairs, Singh will likely be assisted by former union ministers Anand Sharma, Shashi Tharoor and Salman Khurshid in addition to Saptagiri Sanka Ulaka, a Lok Sabha member from Koraput in Odisha. Khurshid has been named its convenor.
The previous prime minister will even head the committee on nationwide safety. Its members are Chief of the Opposition within the Rajya Sabha Ghulam Nabi Azad, former union minister M Veerappa Moily, Vincent H Pala, a Lok Sabha member from Shillong in Meghalaya, and V Vaithilingam, a former chief minister of Puducherry who represents Puducherry within the 17th Lok Sabha. Pala is its convenor.
Out of those, Azad, Sharma, Tharoor and Moily are a part of the group of 23 leaders who wrote a letter to the Congress president in August this 12 months, looking for inside elections and organisational overhaul.
