Daughter says she won’t allow her father’s legacy be wasted once Congress grants the AAP a seat in Bharuch

Mumtaz Patel, the daughter of late Congressman Ahmed Patel, said that she would not let her father’s 45-year legacy to go in vain, shortly after the Congress revealed its seat-sharing agreement with the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) in Gujarat and relinquished the Bharuch Lok Sabha Seat to the latter.

“We sincerely regret to our district cadre for our inability to form a coalition and win the Bharuch Lok Sabha seat.I’m sorry you’re disappointed. We’ll come back together to strengthen INC. We refuse to allow the forty-five years of Ahmed Patel’s legacy go in vain,” she wrote on ‘X’.

In accordance with the terms of their seat-sharing agreement, the Congress will run for 24 of the 26 Gujarati seats, while the AAP will run for 2, both in Bharuch and Bhavnagar.

Mumtaz had earlier this month demanded a scientific solution to the seat-sharing arrangement and said that there is anger among the Congress employees in Bharuch.

Workers and residents of Bharuch are furious with @INCIndia over the Aam Aadmi Party’s biased and defamatory remarks against the late Ahmed Patel ji.Congress will always be there on every street. Religion in coalition cannot be biased.Please hold back and be cautious, she had advised.

In 1977, 1980, and 1984, Ahmed Patel served as the Bharuch Lok Sabha representative. However, Mansukhbhai Vasava of the BJP now occupies the seat.
