Senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel has passed away. Ahmed Patel, 71, was ill for a long time. He breathed his last at Medanta Hospital in Gurugram. He had a corona a month ago. Since then, his health was deteriorating. After the deteriorating health, he had to be admitted to Medanta a few days ago.
The condition did not improve due to Ahmed Patel’s multi-organ failure. He breathed his last at 3.30 this morning. Ahmed Patel’s son Faisal Patel tweeted and informed about his father’s demise. Also appealed that people follow the Corona protocol, maintain social distancing and do not mobilize.
There is a wave of mourning in the party due to the demise of Ahmed Patel, called ‘Chanakya’ of the Congress. Congress interim president Sonia Gandhi said that I have lost a colleague, whose whole life was devoted to the Congress party. His honesty and dedication, his commitment to duty, always trying to help, generosity… he had all these rare qualities that set him apart from others.
Sonia Gandhi said that I have lost a loyal colleague, a friend and a comrade who cannot be replaced. I mourn his demise and I condole his bereaved family. I provide a genuine feeling of sympathy and support to the family of Ahmed Patel.
