Gujarat Congress head and former Union Minister Bharatsinh Solanki on Monday strongly denied the rumours of his resignation from the post.
Mr Solanki, who was in New Delhi on Monday, informed media persons in national capital that all the rumours of his resignation were baseless. The Congress leader said that he was here to seek permission for two-week personal visit to US.
Mr Solanki said after the defeat of Congress in recent Gujarat Assembly elections, he had put forward his desire to quit from the post of Gujarat party chief to the Congress high command but they insisted him to remain in the post.
According to reports, Mr Solanki along with the newly elected Congress Rajya Sabha members–Naran Rathwa and Amiben Yagnik–had met Congress president Rahul Gandhi in National Capital and appealed once again for his resignation.
Meanwhile, Shakti Singh Gohil, national spokesperson of All India Congress Committee, had too rejected the rumours of Solanki’s resignation.
