Senior Congress leader and former union cabinet minister Gurudas Kamat, who had announced his resignation from the party and retirement from active politics on June 6, has withdrawn his resignation.
Karat announced on Thursday that he will resume duties in states where he has been in-charge of the party unit.
“Will continue to serve under leadership of Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi.Will meet the people of my in-charge states starting tomorrow,” Kamat said.
Earlier during this month, Kamat had informed the leadership that he would like to retire from active politics. He had expressed his discontent over the functioning of party’s Mumbai unit. The former chief had also targeted current head Sanjay Nirupam, saying that the party will have to pay a huge price of split among the workers in the ensuing BMC elections.
Kamat held the post of general secretary of the All India Congress Committee. He was in charge of party affairs of Rajasthan where the Congress lost the assembly elections badly in 2013.
