In an obvious bid to counter BJP Prime Minister candidate Narendra Modi, Congress has appointed Ahmedabad based Khurshid Saiyed as chief of its All India Minority Department.
Khurshid an advocate and a trade unionist is general secretary of Gujarat Congress since 2006. In active vote bank politics he has been councilor of Ahmedabad Municipal Corporation for 13 years from 1987 to 2,000.
As general secretary of Gujarat Pradesh Congress Committee Khurshid has played active role in planning and organizing yatras and agitational programmes.
Team Rahul is now focusing on Gujarat to check advances of Narendra Modi. Madhusudan Mistry and Deepak Babaria are among the Gujarat leaders who are playing active role in Rahul’s team. Appointment of Khurshid is also seen from this perspective.
Besides being diligent and dedicated worker, Khurshid enjoys respect of clean image.
