Kamat denies reports of objecting Chidambaram’s RS nomination

New Delhi : Former Congress MP Gurudas Kamat on Thursday denied media reports wherein it was said that he had objected to the nomination of former finance minister P. Chidambaram to the Rajya Sabha from Maharashtra and Narayan Rane’s nomination for the MLC elections.

Issuing a press release, Kamat stated Chidambaram is a very senior and respected leader of the Congress Party, adding that he had worked under the latter in the Home Ministry as the MoS Home.

Kamat further clarified that there were no differences with Rane also and there is no question of having objected to either of their nominations which can be verified from the highest in the party hierarchy instead of relying on ‘unscrupulous rumour mongers’. (ANI)
