Row over ‘Make Ahmed Patel Wazir-e-Alam Of Gujarat’ posters in Muslim areas of Surat

Surat: Posters today morning appeared outside the mosque in Udhna darwaja area of Surat making overtures to the Muslim community. The poster in question (included below), apart from Rahul Gandhi, also showed Sonia Gandhi’s close aide and Rajya Sabha MP Ahmed Patel. The text of the poster reads:

“To maintain unity within the Muslim community and to make Ahmed Patel the ‘Wazir-e-Alam’ (Grand minister) of Gujarat, we request the Muslim community to vote only for Congress.”

The poster drops a huge hint that Ahmed Patel may be the party’s chief ministerial candidate in Gujarat.

Reacting to this Ahmed Patel today said: This is a misinformation campaign by the BJP as now they know they are going to lose. I was never the CM candidate and neither will I ever be.
