On Tuesday, Kumar Ashish was appointed as a Congress secretary attached to Priyanka Gandhi who is the current general secretary in charge of eastern Uttar Pradesh. But yesterday, party chief Rahul Gandhi dismissed him from the team. The Congress leader was sacked from the party just after the day of his appointment as the Congress faced the issue on social media over his involvement in a paper leak case.
In 2005, Kumar Ashish was accused of leaking a question paper in an exam in Bihar and he was thrown out from Congress when he got arrested in the case. Later he had joined the team and had contested the Bihar polls.
One of the party leaders said to the sources, “When this information reached Priyanka Gandhi, she asked for his replacement and Congress President Rahul Gandhi accepted her request and replaced him with Sachin Naik.”
In Bihar, the ruling Janata Dal United had criticized his appointment as well as others on social media.
Among the six secretaries of Uttar Pradesh, Kumar Ashish was one of them. Three secretaries were appointed for each Priyanka Gandhi and Jyotiraditya Scindia. Jyotiraditya Scindia has been tasked with handling the campaign in western U.P.
A Congress statement last night said that “Congress president Rahul Gandhi has canceled the appointment of Kumar Ashish as AICC secretary attached with Priyanka Gandhi, general secretary for UP-East, with immediate effect.”
