The Congress on Tuesday, 12 July, roped in Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot and Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Bhupesh Baghel as senior observers for the upcoming Assembly elections in Gujarat and Himachal Pradesh respectively.
Congress is looking to wrest power from the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) in the poll-bound states this year.

MLAs Lalit Kagathara, Rutvik Makwana, Ambarish J Der, Himmatsingh Patel, Kadir Pirzada, and Indravijaysinh Gohil were named working presidents along with Mevani.
The party also made new appointments in Karnataka, where assembly elections are to be held next year.
Congress didn't fare well in the previous round of Assembly elections, losing in all the states. The party lost Punjab to the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) and Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Goa, and Manipur to BJP.
