Ahmed Patel: UPA govt is sincere

There are people who work less but talk much about their work. There are others who do not believe in tall talk and silently do their work. People do not come to know much about such people but it makes no difference for them. Ahmed Patel, senior Congress leader and political secretary of the Congress President, Sonia Gandhi is a person who falls in the second category.
Ahmed Patel is a highly capable and efficient politician. He feels the pulse of the people and knows what to do when and how, and what action should be taken to strengthen the party. He was actively involved in preparing the common minimum programme (CMP) of the UPA government. Few people know that the proposals put forward for the education and welfare of minorities in the CPM were mainly at the instance of Ahmed Patel and Ghulam Nabi Azad.

Patel efficiently performed his duties whatever responsibility he was entrusted with. Many people have misunderstandings that he is not interested in the problems of Muslims and that he has not done much for promoting the interests of Muslims. This is a wrong view based on misunderstanding and ignorance. Patel is a true sympathiser of Muslims and he does whatever he can for the betterment and welfare of his community. If he was not such a person, he would not have pressed for the promotion of education of Muslims and demanded the setting up of a commission to review the condition of minorities’ educational institutions. This commission has to present its report within six months.

Patel refused to be a minister in the central government, preferring to organise and strengthen the party. He preferred to work as Sonia Gandhi’s political secretary since June 2003.

Patel is not the only person in the Congress Party who is interested in the welfare and development of minorities. Ghulam Nabi Azad is equally interested in solving their problems. It was with the efforts of these two leaders that provision for reservation in educational institutions and employment for religious and linguistic minorities were incorporated in the CPM. After conducting a survey throughout the country about the condition of religious and linguistic minorities, reservation will be given to them as happened in Kerala.
