New Delhi, March 19 (IANS) Congress leader K.V. Thomas, who was miffed after being denied a Lok Sabha berth, on Tuesday said he was "a happy person" after meeting UPA Chairperson Sonia Gandhi.
The outgoing Ernakulam Lok Sabha member said: "I was with her (Gandhi) for 30 minutes and even though I won't be able to tell you all that transpired in the meeting, what I can say is that I am a very happy person.
"I am a member of the Congress family and have been in it since 1968 and will continue to be so. I am a happy man, after the meeting," said Thomas.
Two days back, Thomas was denied a Lok Sabha ticket from Kerala, which he described as "most shocking moment in his entire political career".
Congress sources said Thomas might be given the post of the United Democratic Front Convenor as incumbent Benny Behanan has been asked to contest against Lok Sabha member and CPI-M-backed Independent and comedian Innocent from Chalakudy.
