New Delhi, June 7: The Congress on Tuesday sought to play down the resigtion of former union Minister Gurudas Kamat from the party and said it came on persol grounds. “As far as Gurudas ji’s resigtion is concerned, it has been purely on persol grounds,” senior party spokesperson P.C. Chacko said. “Congress is the biggest party in the country and people always keep leaving and joining the party,” Chacko said. “There were people who left the party and later joined it again. Boota Singh ji left the party and joined back just the next day. I was there to receive him,” he added. Chacko also said that no senior leader left the Congress since the party’s debacle in the general elections 2014.
“No senior leader left the party after the defeat in 2014 Lok Sabha elections and 2015 Delhi assembly elections, and the morale of the Congress workers is still very high,” he said. (IANS)
