Ahmedabad Congress corporator dies due to COVID-19

Gandhinagar, April 27 : Ahmedabad corporator and a senior Congress leader Badruddin Shaikh died on Sunday night, succumbing to the dreaded coronavirus.

The 68-year-old Congressman was considered to be a senior and stalwart politician in the Gujarat Congress unit.

He was hospitalized a week ago after his condition deteriorated during home quarantine.

Shaikh's coronavirus infection results tested positive, a day after the positive test results of a Congress MLA Imran Khedawala.

He was a senior corporator, representing the Behrampura ward in Amdavad Municipal Corporation and had also been the spokesperson of Gujarat Congress.

Congress's national spokesperson Shaktisinh Gohil posted a condolence message on his Twitter account, expressing his grief.

"I am at loss of words.

Badrubhai, as we called him was a stellar of strength and patience. A senior leader of our Gujarat family, I knew him since 40 years when he was with Youth Congress. He was relentlessly working with poor people (and) was infected with Covid_19," Gohil twitted.
