Yadav, a former minister of Haryana, will succeed Tamradhwaj Sahu in the party post.
“Congress president has appointed Capt Ajay Singh Yadav as the chairman of OBC department of AICC with immediate effect,” the party said in a statement.
“The party appreciates the contributions of outgoing chairman Tamradhwaj Sahu,” it added.
