Congress on Thursday appointed new chiefs for the NSUI in Manipur, Jammu and Kashmir and its unit in Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) in Delhi.

Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi appointed the new presidents of the student wing of the grand old party.

While Kabir Ahmed has been appointed as the NSUI chief in Manipur, Sunny Parihar takes over as J&K president.

Prashant Kumar will head the NSUI unit in JNU which is considered a Left bastion where the BJP has been trying to make inroads.

Former Congress leader Ashok Tanwar earlier headed the JNU unit of the NSUI before being elevated to the Youth Congress chief post and later the Haryana Congress president. He, however, quit the party in 2019.
