PB Condoles Comrade P Mohanís Demise

THE Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) expresses its deep grief at the death of Comrade P Mohan, former MP and member of the Tamilnadu state committee of the party. He died last evening at a Chennai hospital. He was 60.

Comrade P Mohan was an activist in the student movement before he joined the party in 1973. He worked as the district secretary of the Democratic Youth Federation of India in Madurai later on. He served as the secretary of the Madurai Urban district of the party for some time. He was a member of the Tamilnadu state committee of the CPI(M) for the past 15 years.

P Mohan conducted various big struggles in Madurai. Notable among them was the one for improving facilities at the Madurai district hospital during the course of which he was brutally attacked by the police and had to be hospitalised for a long time.

He was elected as a member of the Lok Sabha from Madurai for two consecutive terms, in 1999 and 2004. As an MP he effectively raised issues concerning the people of Tamilnadu in parliament.

P Mohan will be remembered as a tireless worker, who was known for his simplicity and utmost dedication to the cause of the common people. His death is a big loss for the party in Tamilnadu

The Polit Bureau conveys its heartfelt condolences to his wife and children.
