Kamat denies he is in race for MRCC post
Mumbai: Former union minister Gurudas Kamat
on Sunday said he was not in the race for the post of Mumbai
Regional Congress Chief (MRCC) and said whoever holds the
responsibility next will receive his full "support".
The party is looking to appoint a new leader for heading
the Mumbai unit after Kripashankar Singh tendered his
resignation last week in the wake of the High Court directing
the city Police Commissioner to prosecute him for "criminal
misconduct" under the Prevention of Corruption Act.
"A section of the media has included my name in the list
of probables. I had the satisfaction of having a successful
tenure of five years as the city unit chief from 2003-08 and
voluntarily resigned after which Singh was appointed," Kamat
said in a statement.
He wanted the best of the lot to be chosen to revive the
party in the city and said, "Whoever is chosen by the
leadership, will receive my full co-operation and support".
