With deep shock and grief, it is intimated that Com. Desraj Sharma, senior P and T union leader and former General Secretary, All India Postal Employees Union, Postmen and Class IV, passed away today 24th September at 09.00 PM. He was ailing and had undergone angioplasty operation twice recently, the last a few days back. Only a few days ago I along with other comrades had visited him. Com. Desraj had contacted me day before yesterday and told that he was better. But now this shocking news of his passing away! It is a great loss to the union movement. My heartfelt condolences to his family, relatives and comrades!
