A few months ahead of the Lok Sabha elections to be held in 2024, Congress President, Mallikarjun Kharge, on Thursday, August 31, appointed Arvinder Singh Lovely as the Delhi Congress Chief, after days of discussions, replacing Chaudhary Anil Kumar.

Officially announcing the same, Congress General Secretary (organization), KC Venugopal, said, ‘Congress president has approved the appointment of Arvinder Singh Lovely as the Delhi Congress chief, with immediate effect.’ The official communication also stated that the party appreciates the contribution of the outgoing Chief, Chaudhary Anil Kumar.

Lovely has served as a minister in the Sheila Dikshit-led Congress government in the national capital. He contested the 2019 Lok Sabha elections unsuccessfully from the east Delhi Parliamentary seat. And the development comes days after the Congress president discussed the issue of replacing the Delhi unit chief with several leaders, including former Congress president, Rahul Gandhi, and several others from the Delhi unit.
