The new PCC with 14 vice-presidents, 35 general secretaries, 61 secretaries and 148-member Executive Committee has accorded representation to all sections and regions.

As many as 34 veteran leaders have been made permanent invitees to the Executive Committee. The party has also announced 27 new urban and rural district presidents across the state.

The Committee's announcement looks like a please-all one with representation from all factions led by PCC chief Pratap Singh Bajwa, former Chief Minister Capt Amarinder Singh and that of Rajinder Kaur Bhattal besides others.

Sons of some of the senior Congress leaders have also been adjusted.

Women representation in the jumbo panel is not high as there is only one vice president, two general secretaries and six secretaries.

The new vice presidents include Patiala rural MLA Brahma Mohindra and four existing vice presidents appointed for different regions, Tarlochan Singh Soond, Om Parkash Soni, Gurpreet Singh Kangar and Charanjit Singh Channi.

Besides, sitting MLAs Kewal Singh Dhillon, Sadhu Singh Dharamsot, Sangat Singh Gilzian, Randeep Singh Nabha and Rana Gurmit Singh Sodhi, former MLA Surinderpal Singh Sibia and CD Singh Kamboj, Sardul Singh Bandana is also the vice president while former MLA Razia Sultana is the only woman vice president.

While Raman Bhalla has been made the treasurer, some of the prominent leaders who have been appointed as general secretaries are MLAs Jagmohan Singh Kang, Jeet Mohinder Singh Sidhu, Aruna Choudhary, Parminder Singh Pinky, Surinder Singh Dawar, Ajaib Singh Bhatti, Karan Brar, Bharat Bhushan Ashu and Amrinder Singh Raja Warring.
