Comrade Lakshmanbhai Patanwadia, a senior Communist leader from Gujarat, a member of CPI-ML State leading team and AICCTU Central Working Committee, passed away on 4th May 2021 at a hospital in Ahmedabad. Three days ago, he tested positive for Covid and was undergoing treatment at the hospital since then.
Comrade Patanwadia was a strong voice in Gujarat against communal fascism. His demise is an irreparable loss to the revolutionary people's movement and the trade union movement in Gujarat.
Long live Comrade Lakshmanbhai Patanwadia!
