“I still say that we are ready to forget this chapter and I appeal to Centre to support us in our development,” he added.
“In the end, truth wins. We respect the verdict of the high court,” he had tweeted after the HC gave its verdict.
The Congress leader also thanked all the party legislators who stood by him during the political crisis.
