As the party struggles to strengthen itself in the key state where it has been out of power on its own for the last three decades, Congress took care to see that all sections were represented on the committee while significant positions were given to leaders from OBC, Dalit and minority communities.
    
Thus, out of the 15 vice-presidents named, 10 are from the SC and backward minorities while a dozen-odd members of such communities find representation among the 25 general secretaries appointed.
    
The party had dissolved its various committees in Bihar in September last year and these were reconstituted today – the second such exercise during the tenure of PCC chief Ashok Chowdhary.
    
A number of leaders, including Chandan Yadav, Vinod Sharma, Ambuj Kishore Jha, Kesra Kumar, Jaiprakash Chowdhary and Brajesh Pandey are either from Youth Congress or NSUI background.
    
District presidents in most of the districts have been changed while the party has come out with a mammoth 77-member executive.
    
Meanwhile, delegating the decision-making power to smaller regions from the party's state headquarters, Congress has also set up nine division-wise coordination committees.
    
The party has also appointed 12 spokespersons to give teeth to its communications strategy in the state where Assembly elections are due this year-end. Forty-three organising secretaries and 76 secretaries, too, have been appointed.
    
A number of former MPs and MLAs have also found place on the new committees.
