Comrade KS Passes Away

Comrade K.Sivaraman  Amar Rahe!

Comrade K.Sivaraman our State AIPRPA Working President and former P4 Circle Secretary as well as Ex- CHQ Assistant General Secretary has passed away today after unsuccessful efforts in Kavery Hospital Chennai tonight. He was taken to the hospital with reported illness but succumbed after two days treatment in hospital. He was also a long time Postal Cooperative Bank President and recently held a special position as the Managing Director of the Bank. He had recently attended the 4th State Conference of AIPRPA TN State Conference in Madurai City on our invitation and request. A recognized leader of  Postal workers movement is no more and his loss is irreparable for all of us. He was Groomed by legendary leader AGP and guided by another great leader of P&T movement Comrade AP in the past. Functioned as the State Convenor of NFPE COC also while he was Circle Secretary. We are shocked by the sad news and sudden death of comrade KS. Closely followed by the demise of another important comrade Jayaprakash three days back, the passing away of comrade Sivaraman is a huge loss to the movement. As a personal and family friend his departure is a huge shock to me. On behalf of AIPRPA CHQ we dip our banner and flag in his fond memory! - KR GS AIPRPA
