The All India Congress Committee has appointed Gaurav Gogoi, member of Parliament from Assam, as in-charge of Manipur and Sikkim, partially modifying its statement on Monday that put him in-charge of Tripura and Manipur along with his current responsibilities.

An AICC release issued on Tuesday said Congress president Sonia Gandhi had appointed Gaurav Gogoi in-charge of Sikkim and Manipur along with his current responsibilities as in-charge of West Bengal and Andaman and Nicobar Islands. It was signed by AICC general secretary K.C. Venugopal. The notification also said that AICC general secretary Luizinho Faleiro would continue as in-charge of Tripura and the rest of the northeastern states.

The AICC’s statement on Monday came about a fortnight after the resignation of Tripura PCC chief Pradyot Kishore Manikya Deb Burman.
