Congress hopeful of leader's return

The Congress is finding it difficult to convince its senior leader Gurudas Kamat to retract his resignation and return to the party fold.

Party’s chief spokesperson Randeep Singh Surjewala reiterated on Wednesday that he is still part of the Congress, but in the same breath he said Mr.Kamat was not in contact with the leadership. “We are not negotiating anything with him and he is not talking to us either. But we are hopeful that he will come back,” said Mr. Surjewala.

Top leaders, however, doubted his return. “He had issues with the leadership in Mumbai for a very long time and he felt the high command was not listening to him,” said a Mumbai-based Congress leader. “There is a fifty-fifty chance of having him back.”
