Com.R.Muthusundaram, former Secretary General of All India State Government Employees Federation (AISGEF) passed away on 30th July after a brief illness. He was a sincere and dedicated leader who wholeheartedly fought for the workers. I had the opportunity to meet him in several conferences and discuss matters. He was very simple and genuine in his dealings. He was also a very good orator. His untimely death is a great loss not only to the state government employees movement, but to the entire trade union movement.

My Heartfelt condolences to the bereaved family friends and also to AISGEF!
