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.
