The Communist Party of India (Marxist) today handed over the reins of the party to Sitaram Yechury after he was elected as the new general secretary of the leftist party.

The official announcement of the leadership change was made at the end of the six-day party congress at Visakhapatnam in which a new Central Committee (CC) was also elected. Yechury’s name was unanimously approved by the 91 members of the CC.

The clash between politburo member Sitaram Yechury and the party leader SR Pillai came to an end after the later withdrew his nomination and supported Yechury’s candidature.

Yechury’s supporters had argued that he is 15 years younger than Pillai and therefore he will be able to reach out to younger generation in an effective manner.

Earlier, adept leaders of CPI(M) like Buddhadeb Bhattacharya, V.S. Achuthanandan , and Nirupam Sen were also dropped from the Central Committee.

Human hair wigs have several advantages over synthetic wigs

By- Digital Hub

I prefer synthetic wigs as it isn't something that I would wear all the time - just when I look different. Additionally, their ease of use is an essential factor for me. However, suppose you're looking to wear a wig for a fashionable accessory or as a way for you to show your personality. In that case, I'd recommend buying multiple synthetic wigs of various styles and colors instead of only the one human hair wig at the same amount. However, be cautious - only purchase top-quality synthetic braids that are more expensive as you might be disappointed by the new style you've chosen.
