He further added, “However, during the last fortnight a large number of senior party leaders tried to convince me to rethink on the decision. My meeting with my party president, Sonia Gandhi, helped me to make up my mind that the Congress party is the best platform to serve the people of this country.”

“I will continue to serve under the leadership of Honorable Congress President Sonia Gandhi and Honorable Vice President Rahul Gandhi with the same charge of Gujarat, Rajasthan, Dadra Nagar Haveli, Daman and Diu as informed to me late last night,” Kamat said.
