A day after his appointment as AICC General Secretary attacked to Priyanka Gandhi to strengthen her Team, Kumar Ashish was sacked by Congress President Rahul Gandhi from the post following allegations of irregularities surfaced against him.

Congress General Secretary In-Charge of Organization KC Venugopal said in a statement, ‘Congress President Rahul Gandhi canceled his appointment with immediate effect’. The Statement added that he will be replaced by Sachin Naik.

Kumar Ashish was booked in a paper Leak case way back in 2005. However, he termed it as ‘Political Conspiracy’ and claimed that he has not been charge-sheeted in the case.

Sources in the party said, soon after his appointment as the General Secretary attacked to Priyanka Gandhi Vadra who is appointed as party’s In-charge for UP east, many leaders from Bihar approached Congress Central Leadership seeking to remove Kumar Ashish. Leaders believed that this will not go well in the campaign and Opposition will find a chance to attack Priyanka Gandhi on the issue.

Earlier on Feb 19, Congress appointed 6 Additional Secretaries in a bid to strengthen Team Priyanka Gandhi and Jyotiraditya Scindia.
