Silchar MP Sushmita Dev becomes new Mahila Congress chief
Congress on Saturday appointed party MP Sushmita Dev as the chief of Mahila Congress.
Sushmita Dev, daughter of former Union minister Santosh Mohan Dev, is MP from Assam’s Silchar. She has earlier been a member of the Assam assembly.
Dev replaces Shobha Oza, who has been in the post since August 2013.
“Congress President Sonia Gandhi has approved the name of Sushmita Dev as president of All India Mahila Congress with immediate effect in place of Shobha Oza,” a party release said, adding the party “appreciates the work and contribution of the outgoing president”.
