After resigning from the Union Cabinet,Congress Lok Sabha MP from Mumbai north-west constituency Gurudas Kamat has decided to focus on the forthcoming civic polls and has chalked out a ward-wise mass contact programme from Friday.

Kamat said he would visit all municipal wards in his Lok Sabha constituency area and interact with people to redress their grievances. To begin with,he would visit five municipal wards in the Goregaon Assembly segment on Friday.

On Saturday,he is scheduled to visit eight wards in the Dindoshi Assembly segment. He said by August end,he would cover all the 43 municipal wards in his constituency.

Sources said after quitting the Cabinet,Kamat was keen on consolidating his position in his constituency and in view of the forthcoming civic polls due in six months,he had decided to interact with people in all municipal wards in his constituency.

They said Kamat,who is a veteran Congress leader from Mumbai,was elected for five terms in the Lok Sabha. He had headed the Mumbai Congress and may play a crucial role for the party in the ensuing civic polls.

Kamat had resigned from the Union cabinet after the recent reshuffle in which he was shifted from the post of Minister of State for Home to a Minister of State (independent charge) of water supply and sanitation.

According to sources,Kamat felt slighted when the Congress MP from South Mumbai Milind Deora,son of Kamat’s bete noire Murli Deora,was inducted in the Union cabinet as a MoS.
