They are Tarlochan Singh for Doaba, O.P. Soni for Majha, and Gurdeep Singh Kangar and Charanjit Singh Channi for Malwa,’ said a statement from Congress general secretary Janardan Dwivedi here.

‘They will be responsible for party organisation in their regions,’ said the statement. On 5 March, Gandhi had appointed Bajwa, the MP from Gurdaspur, as the new chief of the Punjab unit, replacing Capt. Amarinder Singh.
