It is with shock that the sad news of the death of Comrade V.Mukundan, Retd.JTO, Karnataka Circle and a veteran leader of the telecom workers was received by all who knew him. He was only 67 years.He passed away due to a massive heart attack at 15.00 hours on 28th June 2016 at HD Kote, Mysuru.

Com.Mukundan was one of the founders of the E.III(N) union in Karnataka, along with Coms. M.Sadananda, (late)Mukundan(Kundapuram) and R.G.Bhandari. He was the District Secretary of E.III(N) in Mysuru and also the Circle President of SNEA(I) later. During the 1990s, several times I had toured many places in Karnataka along with Com. Mukundan and other comrades, while organising the union.

He was a good organiser and speaker and was sincere to the core.

My heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family, friends and Comrades!
