Comrade Y Radhakrishna Murthy


The following is the text of the condolence message sent by Prakash Karat, general secretary of the Communist Party of India (Marxist) to the secretary of the Andhra Pradesh state committee of the CPI(M) on October 20, 2013


Dear Comrade


I WAS deeply saddened to hear the news of the death of Comrade Y Radhakrishna Murthy. Dr Radhakrishna Murthy was a leader who worked dedicatedly for decades for the communist movement. He also served the people as a medical doctor.


He remained steadfast in his commitment to Marxism and represented the Party in parliament as a member of the Rajya Sabha.


In his death the Party and the Left have suffered a big loss.


Please convey my heartfelt condolences to all his family members.


Prakash Karat

General Secretary
