Congressman Ahmed Patel’s son Faisal Patel dropped a big tip today that he may be on his way.
Ahmed Patel, a close relative of Congress President Sonia Gandhi and her political secretary, passed away in 2020.
Faisal Patel, 41, recently said he was not sure if he was formally joining Congress.
“Tired of waiting around. No encouragement from the top buyers. To keep my options open,” he tweeted today.

The post talked about Faisal Patel making his political debut in another party ahead of elections later this year in Gujarat, his home state.
He also tweeted that he was going to tour through parts of Gujarat. “From April 1, I will be touring the 7 meeting seats of Bharuch and Narmada districts. My team will evaluate the current reality of the political situation and will make major changes if necessary to achieve our main goal – win all 7 seats if the Lord wills ., ”He tweeted on March 27.
His recent meeting with the head of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP), Arvind Kejriwal, has intensified speculation. AAP tried to make ascent in Gujarat.
Ahmed Patel, a Rajya Sabha member from Gujarat, was one of the congress’ problem solvers and a confidant of the Gandhi family. He died of Covid-related complications.
His son Faisal’s tweet reflects the general dissatisfaction and drive in the party, which has worsened over the defeat of the series election.
Several leaders, including Jyotiraditya Scindia, Jitin Prasada, Ashwani Kumar and RPN Singh, have left the party over the past two years.
The party fears more resignation after its latest election defeat, in five states.
There are already reports of disillusionment in Congress’ Gujarat unit.
