Comrade R Kuppa Naidu

 

THE All India Agricultural Workers Union (AIAWU) has expressed its deep sense of grief over the sad demise of Comrade R Kuppa Naidu, a member of the AIAWU General Council and vice president of the unionís Andhra Pradesh state unit. Comrade Naidu breathed his last at Tirupati in Andhra Pradesh on August 27, 2912, after he suffered a fatal attack. He was 65 years old and was working in the agricultural workers movement for the last 35 years. He was active in the land struggle and in the struggles for employment guarantee, forest rights, especially in tribal areas, and the land rights for the scheduled castes.

 

On the day, the AIAWU dipped its banner in Comrade Naiduís memory and conveyed its heartfelt condolences to the AIAWU members and people in Andhra Pradesh who have lost a dedicated leader in their hour of need.
