New Delhi: Jitu Patwari has taken over as the new president of Madhya Pradesh Congress Committee, succeeding Kamal Nath. The Congress, in a press release on Saturday, announced that Patwari has been appointed as the new Madhya Pradesh Congress chief “with immediate effect”.

The Congress appreciated the contributions of the outgoing PCC president Kamal Nath. The party’s press release read, “Hon’ble Congress president has appointed Shri Jitu Patwari as the President of Madhya Pradesh Congress Committee, with immediate effect.”

The party announced further, “Hon’ble Congress President has also approved the proposal of the appointment of Shri Umang Singhar, as the CLP leader and Shri Hemant Katare as the Deputy leader of Madhya Pradesh.”

The Congress decided to alter the leadership of its state unit after facing a defeat against the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the recent Madhya Pradesh Assembly Election.

The BJP secured a victory in Madhya Pradesh, holding onto power by winning 163 out of the total 230 assembly seats. Meanwhile, the Congress secured 66 seats, and the Bharat Adivasi Party claimed one seat in the 2023 state elections.

Jitendra (Jitu) Patwari has assumed the role of Madhya Pradesh Congress chief. Formerly serving as an MLA from the Rau assembly seat, he contested the 2023 Madhya Pradesh Election from Rau, where he faced defeat against BJP’s Madhu Verma by a margin of 35,522 votes.

Patwari was the Minister for Higher Education, Sports, and Youth Affairs in the Kamal Nath-led government from December 2018 to March 2020.
