Thrissur: Union Minister Suresh Gopi on Monday (June 10) dismissed media reports about his resignation from the Council of Ministers of the Modi 3.0 government. His response comes after media reports claimed that the BJP MP from Thrissur expressed his desire to be relieved of his ministerial duties to concentrate on movies. 

Taking to social media, Suresh Gopi said, "A few media platforms are spreading the incorrect news that I am going to resign from the Council of Ministers of the Modi Government. This is grossly incorrect. It is a matter of pride for me to be in the Council of Ministers of the Modi Government and to represent the people of Kerala. Under the leadership of Prime Minister Narendra Modi Ji, we are committed to the development and prosperity of Kerala."
 

There were reports that he was disappointed after being assigned the position of Minister of State, despite playing a key role in securing a historic victory for the BJP in Kerala. When summoned to Delhi to be sworn in as a minister, Gopi had informed the BJP central leadership about his previous commitments to complete ongoing film projects.
