Gurudas Kamat withdraws resignation from Congress, says will continue to serve under Sonia, Rahul

New Delhi: Senior Congress leader Gurudas Kamat on Thursday withdrew his resignation from the party, days after he announced to part ways.

"My meeting with party president Sonia Gandhi helped me to make up my mind that Congress is the best platform to serve the people. 

"During the last fortnight a large number of senior party leaders tried to convince me to rethink on the decision (of resignation)," Kamat said.

The party was hopeful of his coming back as it said was making efforts to address reasons for his perceived grievances.

Kamat was reportedly unhappy over the way some issues had been handled by Mumbai Congress chief Sanjay Nirupam and party incharge Mohan Prakash.

"An apparent reason for his unhappiness was the way issues relating to Mumbai North East, the constituency he has represented in Lok Sabha, had been handled," the Indian Express quoted a Congress leader as saying.

Kamat, a five-time MP from Mumbai, had tendered his resignation from the party and active politics earlier this month.

"I will continue to serve under leadership of Sonia and Rahul Gandhi. Will meet the people of my in-charge states starting tomorrow," Kamat said.
