New Delhi: Hours after the Congress removed him as party spokesperson, Monday, Thiruvananthapuram MP Shashi Tharoor has issued a statement in accepting the party's decision while also ruing about not being given an opportunity to present his defence.

“I have seen the press release issued by AICC, as a loyal worker of the Congress party, accept the decision of the party president to relieve me of my responsibiliot8ies as a spokesman,” Tharoor said.

“I am in politics to serve the people of India and my constituency, Thiruvananthapuram, through my service to the Congreess party. This I have always done with utmost sincerity and commitment and I will continue to do so . Whatever responsibilities the party has entrusted to me I have fulfilled without reservation, and I fully recognize it is the prerogative of the party to alter these responsibilities,” he said.

While I have not yet seen the KPCC complaint refereed to, and while I would have welcomed an opportunity to respond to it and draw the attention of the AICC leadership to the full range of my statements and writings on contemporary political issues, I am now treating this matter as closed and have no further comment to make,” he said.
