CPI Condoles Demise of Com Ramchandra Singh Yadav
The National Secretariat of the Communist Party of India has issued today (on May 12, 2021) the following statement condoling the demise of party national council member and former MLA Com Ramchandra Singh Yadav:
Com Ramchandra Singh Yadav member of the national council of the CPI, president of the Bihar Rajya Kisan Sabha and former MLA passed away in the evening of May 11, 2021 at Mahabodhi hospital at Gaya in Bihar at the age of 71, due to Covid-19 virus infection. In spite of his otherwise ill health, he had been keeping well for quite some time.
He was born on March 28, 1950 in village Barun of Aurangabad district in Bihar. He was drawn towards the CPI during the student agitation of 1967 as a student of Barun VC High School. Later he graduated in science from Jain College, Sasaram and joined as a school teacher. But soon he got involved in the activities of the party and started serving the workers and peasants of the area. Subsequently he resigned from his service and became the organiser and leader of the CPI.
Very soon he rose to become a popular name amongst the masses so much so that he was thrice elected Mukhiya of his gram panchayat. He also founded the Barun Vyapar Mandal and subsequently served as its president for three consecutive terms beginning with 1979. In 1995 he was elected as MLA on CPI ticket from Rafiganj constituency in undivided Bihar.
Com. Ramchandra Singh all along played very significant roles in party organisation. He remained the Aurangabad district secretary of the party for three terms. Besides, he shouldered the responsibilities as member of the state executive, the state control commission as well as the national council of the party respectively till he breathed his last. He has made immense contribution in building the Kisan Sabha in Bihar.
His demise has caused a void within the party and the Kisan Sabha, hard to fulfil in the near future.
The party pays its respectful homage to his memory.
CPI general secretary D. Raja conveyed over phone to Bihar State Council Secretary Ram Naresh Pandey Party’s and his personal condolences.
