In a clarification to The Hindu, Mr. Radhakrishan Vikhe Patil denied that no such decision had been taken by him. “No, it is not true,” Mr. Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil said when asked whether he will submit his resignation today. He didn’t reply on whether the Congress leadership has asked him to resign.

Ever since his son joined the BJP to contest from Ahmednagar Lok Sabha constituency, rumours on Mr. Radhakrishna Vikhe Patil’s resignation were rife.
