Four new faces from Maha appointed to CWC

Four new faces from Maharashtra, including former chief minister Ashok Chavan, have been inducted into the Congress Working Committee (CWC), indicating the party's focus on the state ahead of the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. The appointments are seen as a move to rejig the leadership in Maharashtra and improve the party's performance in regions like Vidarbha and Marathwada. The Congress hopes to better its score in the 2024 elections and plans to reshuffle its organisational set-up in the state. Chavan's induction into the CWC is seen as a significant development, raising his stature in the state unit.

Five farmers, including a woman, have died by suicide in the Yavatmal district of Maharashtra, India, due to agro-crisis and financial issues. Activist Kishore Tiwari claims that a total of 1,565 farmer suicides have occurred in the Vidarbha region so far this year, with the main cash crop of cotton facing low demand and the cost of agro inputs increasing.
