the 25th death anniversary of Com.N.P.Padmanabhan (Pappettan) falls on 5th March 2019. He was the militant leader of the P and T workers. He functioned as the Secretary of NFPTE, Convener of the P and T Co-coordinating Committee as also the convener of the Confederation. He was dismissed for leading the 19th September 1968 strike and was taken back only after the Janata Government came in to power in 1977.
I have written a book in Malayalam on the life and activities of Pattettan “N.P.Padmanabhan – the Militant Leader of the P and T Workers” , which was released in the last of Circle Conference of NFPE at Tirur. The day is being observed by the P and T workers all over Kerala.
Red Salute to Com.N.P.Padmanabhan!
