Union minister for social justice and empowerment, Kumari Selja, has said she had sent a letter to the party high command regarding the appointment of new president of the Haryana Pradesh Congress Committee (HPSC). "The high command will take a final decision on it," Selja told mediapersons here on Saturday. She was here to meet the party workers and listen to the problems of people.

In reply to a question about drubbing the Congress received in the elections of four states, Selja said, "The party is looking into the factors that led to this situation and necessary steps are being taken. I am sure that the UPA will again form government at the Centre after the Lok Sabha elections. There is much difference between elections of Lok Sabha and state assembly. Congress vice-president Rahul Gandhi has already asked the party workers to return to the masses with new enthusiasm and try to know their problems and sentiments."

To a question about the Aam Aadmi Party's performance in the Delhi polls, she said, "It won't have much impact on the Lok Sabha elections." Commenting on development of Haryana, she said, "We have already placed our suggestions for equal development of districts and employment opportunities to all before the party high command."

HPSC member Jagan Nath and Congress legislator from Uklana, Naresh Selwal, were also present on the occasion.
