Gurugram (Haryana) [India], November 19 (ANI): The health of senior Congress leader Ahmed Patel, who was admitted to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU) of a Gurugram hospital a few days ago, is significantly better, his family said on Wednesday.

"Spoke to the doctors today. He is significantly better than when he was admitted a few days ago to the ICU Medanta. He is stable. Treatment is going to take more time," Mumtaz, Ahmed Patel's daughter, said in a video posted by her brother Faisal Patel on Twitter.

She also asked the people to keep praying for the speedy recovery of her father. Several leaders, including Congress's Rahul Gandhi, have extended their wishes for Patel's well-being.
