A day after Kamal Nath resigned from his post, Congress has appointed Shiela Dikshit as Punjab in-charge for the party.

Kamal Nath on Wednesday submitted his resignation from the post of the general secretary in-charge of the coming elections in Punjab following a controversy over his alleged role in the 1984 Sikh riots.

He submitted his resignation letter to Congress chief Sonia Gandhi and mentioned he had been "hurt by developments in the past few days, where unnecessary controversy has been created around 1984 riots".

Sonia Gandhi had accepted his resignation on Wednesday itself. Now, former Delhi CM  Shiela Dikshit will replace him and handle the charge.
