    Shri Ahmed Patel was the man in Congress who steered and implemented all those beneficial schemes for minorities under Congress rule. In one way, he was the architect who brought up Congress to such a majority in UPA I and UPA II times. In another way, he was the one who kept away all the real well wishers of Congress from the highcommand and let the old guard all the access, thus by making veteran Congressmen uncomfortable. The 23 good congressmen's ideas too were shunted by Mr. Patel.
    May his soul rest in peace.

    Early demise of MP Ahmad Patel is a big blow to Congress because he was the only leader who could defend the party in trouble. May his soul rest in peace.
