Comrade Bhalchandra Kerkar

 Comrade Bhalchandra Kerkar is no more. He fell to Covid19 on 25 April morning in a Pune hospital. We have lost a long-standing well-wisher and close friend of the AICCTU and CPI-ML, a senior leader of LIC employees’ movement and member of the Central Committee of Lal Nishan Party (Leninist) of Maharashtra. 

He took keen interest in organising a whole range of informal sector workers. He was also founding president of Domestic workers’ union in Pune. 

He used to closely follow the advances, and set¬backs, of the communist movement internationally. 

Red Salute to Comrade Kerkar.
