Leaders grieve Ahmed Patel’s demise, Sonia Gandhi says ‘I’ve lost an irreplaceable comrade, a faithful colleague & a friend’

New Delhi: A staunch loyalist of Nehru-Gandhi family, Ahmed Patel was the go-to man in the Congress who kept a low profile but quietly wielded power and meticulously executed decisions of the leadership. The veteran Congress leader breathed his last at the wee hours of Wednesday at a Gurugram hospital, fighting the COVID-19 and related complications for over a month.

Patel was undergoing treatment after testing positive for the COVID-19. He was 71. “Distressed to know that veteran Congress leader Ahmed Patel is no more. An astute Parliamentarian, Shri Patel combined the skills of a strategist and the charm of a mass leader. His amiability won him friends across party lines. My condolences to his family and friends,” Kovind tweeted.
