Comrade Baidyanath Majumdar


THE Polit Bureau of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) expresses its deep grief at the passing away of Comrade Baidyanath Majumdar, veteran leader of the party and the communist movement of Tripura. 


Baidyanath Majumdar served the party and the working class with utmost dedication and sincerity for more than 65 years. He worked to build the trade union movement and the party facing repression at various periods. He played a notable role in the building of the CPI(M) and became the secretary of the state committee of the party. As an organiser of the working class, he was earlier the secretary of the CITU. He served as a member of the Central Committee of the party till ill health forced him to retire. 


Baidyanath Majumdar also served the people as an elected legislator, minister and as the deputy chief minister of Tripura. 


Baidyanath Majumdar’s life was that of an exemplary communist. He was always firm in his Marxist convictions. 


The party has lost a valuable leader and the people of Tripura a consistent champion of their interests. The Polit Bureau pays its respectful homage to his memory and conveys its heartfelt sympathy to all his family members.
