THE LAST LEAF IN THE FIRST GENERATION OF COMMUNIST LEADERS BREATHED HIS LAST TONIGHT AT 20.30 HRS AT DELHI
AIBOA HAS LOST ONE OF THE BEST FRIEND, PHILOSOPHER AND GUIDE IN THIS YEAR
COM.A.B.BARDHAN….RED SALUTES RED SALUTES
Com.A.B.Bardhan, born in 1925 in Sythet [Bangaladesh], plunged into action to champion the cause of voiceless and defenceless common men of this great Nation throughout his lifetime. Joined the All India Student Federation, to begin with, made the way to enrol in the CPI, a banned party in the English rule. During his college days he was a natural choice to lead AISF, in the University of Nagpur. With lot of ordeals, he qualified himself as M.A., LLB.,
He was loved by one and all, from all walks of life. He nurtured the Electricity Employees Trade Union effectively till his last breath. Representing the people of Maharashtra, he was a member of Legislative Assembly for five years term from 1957.
Becoming a member of the National Council of the CPI in 1968, gradually empowered with the duties to handle the affairs of the party as a General Secretary from 1996 upto 2012. Not only he was the natural choice to lead the party, but also the AITUC for a brief period.
Com.A.B.Bardhan, who was a leader of Central Bank Employees’ Union, Nagpur, was the Chairman of the Reception Committee of the Foundation Conference of AIBOA in February 1981, which elected Com.Prabhat Kar and Com.P.K.Menon as President and General Secretary respectively. He was the inaugurator of our Silver Jubilee Conference at Delhi in 2006 as well as in 2011 at Chennai. Late Com.RJS and Com.Alok Khare, Vice Chairman were enjoying best support, guidance and also a helping hand at the time of crisis.
The Trade Union movement as a whole has lost one of the tallest leader, who ceaselessly fought for the people of this great Nation. The void created due to the demise of Com.A.B.Bardhan can never be filled.
AIBOA CENTRAL SECRETARIAT bows with sincere heartfelt feelings on the sad demise of the last leaf in the banyan tree of the communists, who stood for providing voice to voiceless in this Country.
RED SALUTES RED SALTUES
Yours in grief
