While Pradesh Congress Committee chief Nirmal Khatri remains in the post as of now, there are indications that he will be changed shortly after a revamped PCC is in place.

"We will reconstitute the new state, district and block Congress committees in Uttar Pradesh by July 15. As far as appointment of a new PCC chief is concerned, the decision is to be taken by party high command," a senior AICC functionary said on the condition of anonymity.

The general practice in Congress is that the incumbent PCC chief continues in the post till the successor is announced.

Congress was decimated in Uttar Pradesh in the Lok Sabha polls, securing just two of the 80 seats won by Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi from family pocket boroughs of Rae Bareli and Amethi.

In the 2009 Lok Sabha polls, Congress had won an unexpected 22 seats.
