Speaking on the occasion Senior Congress Leader and Permanent Invitee Punjab Pradesh Congress Committee MM Singh Cheema said he was the moving spirit behind the Congress Party and was a pillar of strength. He lived and breathed Congress and stood by the party through its most difficult time. He really was an asset for the party. A man who has been a Parliamentarian since 1977, Ahmed Patel was a low key politician, not a front bencher. Imagine representing a state for 8 terms in Parliament! 3 terms in Lok Sabha, 5 terms Rajya Sabha he always preferred to be away from Ministerial Opportunity always requesting High command to work for party. We all congressmen are saddened by the demise of Sh. Ahmed Patel.
