New Delhi, Apr 29 (IBNS): In a major development, Congress leader Digvijaya Singh has been removed as the party's in-charge in poll-bound Karnataka as well as Goa.

Singh has been replaced in Goa by A Chellakumar.

While, in Karnataka, Congress has appointed KC Venugopal to the post.

Assembly polls in Karnataka is scheduled to take place next year.

Singh said he was feeling happy that new 'team' has been selected by the Congress in the two states.

"I am happy finally new Team is being picked up by Rahul ji," Singh tweeted.

"I enjoyed working with Congress Leaders and Workers in Goa and Karnataka. Convey my gratitude for all their support," he said.

Singh said: "I am loyal to the Party and Nehru Gandhi Family and owe my position to the Party and to them."

Despite emerging as the single largest party, the Congress failed to form the government in Goa.
