Senior Congress leader and former Union minister Gurudas Kamat, on Monday, withdrew his decision of not campaigning for the party in the civic polls, saying that he was doing so at the request of party workers.
This is the second time that Kamat has done a U-turn about his feud with Mumbai Congress chief Sanjay Nirupam. Earlier, he had announced his retirement from public life.
Unhappy over the selection procedure of candidates, Kamat had announced that he would stay away from the campaign, two weeks back.
On Monday, he claimed that party workers from various parts of the city were requesting him to participate in the campaign and so, he had decided to resume campaigning.
Meanwhile, Congress general secretary in charge of Maharashtra Mohan Prakash, faced the ire of workers of an organisation led by the party’s disgruntled general secretary Vilas Rupawate. He was gheraod by the workers at Vile Parle on Monday.
