The suspension of former Union minister, Shakeel Ahmad, from Congress for contesting as an Independent candidate from a Lok Sabha seat in Bihar last year was revoked on Wednesday.
The move comes just ahead of the Assembly polls in Bihar.
All India Congress Committee Bihar in-charge, Shaktisinh Gohil, welcomed Shakeel Ahmad back in the ‘Congress family’ over a year after he was suspended in May 2019.
Shaktisinh Gohil also posted the letter AICC general secretary, Motilal Vora, on Twitter, in which he said that the Congress president was glad to revoke the suspension with immediate effect.
Shakeel Ahmad was suspended from the party last year for contesting as an Independent from the Madhubani Lok Sabha seat in Bihar.
The party had said last year that Shakeel Ahmad — who had won the Madhubani seat for Congress in 2004 — has been suspended with immediate effect for going against the party decision.
