अहमद पटेल नहीं रहे। एक अभिन्न मित्र विश्वसनीय साथी चला गया। हम दोनों सन् ७७ से साथ रहे। वे लोकसभा में पहुँचे मैं विधान सभा में। हम सभी कॉंग्रेसीयों के लिए वे हर राजनैतिक मर्ज़ की दवा थे। मृदुभाषी, व्यवहार कुशल और सदैव मुस्कुराते रहना उनकी पहचान थी।

Ahmed ji was not only a wise and experienced colleague to whom I constantly turned for advice and counsel, he was a friend who stood by us all, steadfast, loyal, and dependable to the end.
His passing away leaves an immense void. May his soul rest in peace.

Deeply pained, A void to remain & an irreplaceable loss to the Nation & @INCIndia.
I have not only lost a senior party leader but also a affectionate friend, philosopher and guide. @ahmedpatel will forever be a guiding light for me.
May the Almighty give strength to the family. pic.twitter.com/Ute2E3carr

#AP was one of the most unflappable, sharpest, focused political minds I have encountered. He had an unmatched talent to cut to the chase & his memory recall, connecting names & people to events for the job on hand was unprecedented. Huge loss for #Congress
