Ranchi: The Congress in Jharkhand on Wednesday got a boost when Ranchi Mayor and tribal leader Rama Khalkho joined the party.

AICC leader and party's Jharkhand Affairs in-charge Shakeel Ahmed welcomed her at the Congress office in New Delhi, according to a party release in Ranchi.

Welcoming Khalkho into the Congress, Ahmed said such women leaders would strengthen the party in Jharkhand. Congress leader and former union minister Subodh Kant Sahay also welcomed Khalkho, who was with the regional outfit Jharkhand Janadhikar Manch.
