Mumbai Regional Congress Committee President Gurudas Kamat on Thursday submitted his resignation from the post as also as an MP to Sonia Gandhi to express his solidarity with the Congress President and asked other party MPs to follow suit.

Kamat met Gandhi in the afternoon and submitted his resignation to protest "political vendetta and misinformation campaign" carried out by BJP and other opposition parties.

A known loyalist, Kamat said his action was aimed at showing that Congressmen like Gandhi do not hanker after power.

He said he has called a meeting of party MPs, legislators and Municipal Councillors and office bearers in Mumbai on Friday.
