Expressing his gratitude to the Congress leadership to have given him a chance to serve Punjab, former Cabinet minister Sunder Sham Arora on Saturday said he accepts the party’s decision to not include him in the council of ministers to be expanded on Sunday, with all humility.
“I am privileged to have been able to serve my state as a Cabinet minister,” said Arora, extending his best wishes to the newly constituted Cabinet. As a worker of the party and a state industries minister, I have done my best to safeguard the interests of my Hoshiarpur and my people always and would always keep striving to serve my people and state, he said.
The former Cabinet minister vacated his official residence and office immediately after learning that he is not the part of the new Cabinet.
Underlining the Congress party’s resolve to ensure the state’s continued upward trend towards holistic progress, Arora expressed confidence that Punjab will touch greater heights of development in coming years.
