Milind Deora expressed his desire to quit shortly after meeting Congress leader Rahul Gandhi in New Delhi on June 26.“The same has been conveyed to All India Congress Committee general secretaries Mallikarjun Kharge and K C Venugopal,” the statement said.

Milind Deora said political realities have changed since the Lok Sabha results. “We all will have to get ready for roles that these times demand,” he said.
