Ahmed Patel’s daughter Mumtaz will enter active politics

July 11 2023

Mumtaz Patel, daughter of the late Ahmed Patel, who was once the pivot of Congress politics and one of the party’s Chanakya, has stepped up her pace to enter active Congress politics. Mumtaz along with her father’s former aide Yatindra Sharma met Rahul Gandhi, Mallikarjun Kharge and Venugopal on the same day an important meeting was going on at the Congress headquarters in Delhi regarding Chhattisgarh. Kanishk Singh and Mukul Wasnik are said to have played an important role in getting this meeting fixed. Ahmed Patel’s once very trusted people wanted Mumtaz to get a place in the Congress Working Committee, the top decision-making body of the party. It is also being heard that Kharge proposed to Mumtaz to take over the reins of Mahila Congress, but Mumtaz has refused for it. Mumtaz wants to contest the next Lok Sabha election from her father’s Bharuch seat. This seat was continuously held by the Congress from 1952 to 1977. In 1977, when the anti-Congress wave was going on in the country, Ahmed Patel was fielded by the Congress and then Patel won the election and after winning, he supported Indira Gandhi. Then Ahmed Patel won the elections of 1980 and 1985 from Bharuch to make it a triumvirate of victories and in 1989 he was elected to the Rajya Sabha, and thereafter continued to remain in the Rajya Sabha, but his relationship with Bharuch was never broken. He continued to represent Bharuch, while Bharuch is a seat dominated by Rajputs. Rahul Gandhi has set a target of giving 50 per cent space to the youth under 50 in the Congress organization, that is why Mumtaz also feels that she is going to get something big in the Congress organization.
