Congress names Mallikarjun Kharge leader of the opposition in Rajya Sabha | India News


NEW DELHI: Congress has named party veteran Mallikarjun Kharge to the position of leader of the opposition in Rajya Sabha.
The post will become vacant with the forthcoming retirement of MP Ghulam Nabi Azad.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, in a tearful farewell to the opposition leader in Rajya Sabha on Tuesday, said: “The person who will replace Ghulam Nabi ji (as leader of the opposition) will have a hard time matching his job because he was not only worried about his party but also about the country and the House “.
