New Delhi: Congress on Wednesday disapproved of resignation by Gurudas Kamat and utterances by Veerappa Moily after the reshuffle of Council of Ministers, saying such developments should not have taken place.

"These things should not have happened," Congress spokesman Abhishek Singhvi told reporters when asked to comment on Kamat's resignation and Moily's outburst against "vested interests" for change of his portfolio.

Kamat, who held the portfolio of Minister of State for Home and Communications, was upset after he was shifted to a new Ministry for Drinking Water and Sanitation.

With regard to the resignation of Kamat, Singhvi said it was a matter between the government and the person concerned.

The spokesman also insisted that Prime Minister Manmohan Singh had not categorically ruled out any further reshuffle of Council of Ministers, contending that he had only hoped it would be the last such major exercise before polls.
