Gurudas Kamat changes his mind

NEW DELHI: Former Union minister and Congress leader Gurudas Kamat, who had quit the Congress early this month, has withdrawn his resignation after meeting Congress president Sonia Gandhi on Thursday.

“Meeting with party president Sonia Gandhi helped me to make up my mind that Congress is the best platform to serve the people,” Kamat said.

The Congress leaders had made attempts to convince five-time Mumbai lawmaker Gurudas Kamat to withdraw his resignation earlier as well.

“During last fortnight a large number of senior party leaders tried to convince me to rethink on the decision,” Kamat said.

Kamat in his comeback showed his willingness to work under the leadership of Sonia Gandhia and Rahul Gandhi again, to serve the nation.

The minister said he will resume his charge as Congress general secretary and will meet the people of his states starting Friday.

He had submitted his resignation to Sonia Gandhi on June 8 ahead of next year’s Mumbai civic elections expressing his desire to quit from active politics.
