With deep grief it is intimated that Com. R.S Yadav, veteran leader, former Vice-President of NFPTE, Circle Secretary of E.III Union of undivided U.P.Circle for a period of 40 years as also Circle President later, passed away today, 30th August 2018. He was not well for some time. He was 86.

Com. R.S.Yadav was a giant of a leader taking all together in the forward march. I cherish the long bond with him for many years and the struggle for democracy in the organisation. He has written books on Trade Union and translated the famous book “Gadfly” in to Hindi. On my request, he had translated in to Hindi, the book on Communist pioneer, Com. Hyder Amir Khan, written by Com. Mohd. Amin, former PBM of CPI(M).  His  death is an irreparable  loss.

I convey my heartfelt condolence to the bereaved family, friends and comrades.
