New Delhi: Sacked as Congress spokesperson, Lok Sabha member Shashi Tharoor Monday said he accepted the decision as a "loyal party worker".

In his statement, the Thiruvananthapuram MP also clarified that he will not make any more comments on the matter and treat it as "closed".

"I have seen the press release issued by the AICC and, as a loyal worker of the Congress party, accept the decision of the party president to relieve me of my responsibilities as a spokesman," he said.

He said he has not yet seen the complaint of the party's Kerala unit against him, following which he was sacked.

"While I have not yet seen the KPCC (Kerala Pradesh Congress Committee) complaint referred to, and while I would have welcomed an opportunity to respond to it and draw the attention of the AICC leadership to the full range of my statements and writings on contemporary political issues, I am now treating this matter as closed and have no further comment to make," he said.

The former union minister added that he is in politics to "serve the people" and will continue to do so.

"I am in politics to serve the people of India, and my constituency, Thiruvananthapuram, through my service to the Congress party. This I have always done with utmost sincerity and commitment and I will continue to do so."

"Whatever responsibilities the party has entrusted to me, I have fulfilled without reservation, and I fully recognize it is the prerogative of the party to alter these responsibilities."

Tharoor was Monday sacked from the post of Congress spokesperson, a statement from the party said here.
