Gopinath Munde Withdraws Resignation


Mumbai, Apr 22: Senior Maharashtra Bharatiya Janata Party leader Gopinath Munde on Tuesday withdrew his resignation from the party general secretary post.

"I am satisfied with my discussions with the party leadership," Munde told reporters.

Munde had earlier said that he would stay in the party and that had never thought of joining any other platform.

"I have been with the BJP for the last 30 years and I will stay in the party. I have never thought of joining any other platform. I will never think of it," Munde, who had created a flutter by resigning from all party posts on Sunday, told reporters in Delhi on his arrival from Mumbai.

Munde, who met senior BJP leader L K Advani, said, "I will place my grievances before the party high command. I will respect whatever decision they take."

Party president Rajnath Singh, after a meeting of the BJP parliamentary party, said the crisis in its Maharashtra unit will be resolved "amicably".

"There is no crisis. Gopinath Munde is in Delhi today and I am sure that misunderstanding, if any, will be resolved amicably," Rajnath Singh told reporters. The meeting was attended by Advani and other senior BJP leaders.

Munde had said on Sunday that the party had not been functioning in a democratic manner, which led him to take the decision.

Munde is apparently miffed with the appointment of Madhu Chavan as head of party's Mumbai unit.
