Ajay Maken, the newly appointed state in charge for Congress in Rajasthan will reach Jaipur on Sunday evening for a three-day visit. Maken was appointed after removal of Avinash Pande from the post. Maken is scheduled to hold extensive meetings with party functionaries over three days from Monday to Wednesday.

He will be welcomed by state Congress chief Govind Singh Dotasara, former vice president Mumtaz Maseeh, chief whip Mahesh Joshi, transport minister Pratap Singh Khachariyawas and other party functionaries and legislators.
