Glowing tributes paid to Jyoti Basu

From our Special Correspondent
SILCHAR,Jan 20: Leaders and workers at a memorial meeting held at Janiganj today paid their glowing tributes to the great Communist leader and the longest serving Chief Minister of West Bengal, Jyoti Basu. Dulal Mitra, advocate and a prominent CPM leader, described Basu as a man of versatile personality who was all through his life committed to Marxist ideology and fought for the emancipation of the oppressed and marginalized sections of society. Deepak Bhattacharjee, former MLA and a dedicated leader of the party, recalled the visit of Jyoti Basu to Silchar several times, the last one being in 1978 for election campaign. Offering his profound respect to the departed leader, he said in his demise, CPM has lost a great friend, philosopher and guide, a void which could hardly be filled. Similar homage was paid by others who recalled Jyoti Basu as colossus figure with exceptional intellect and intelligence, valiant, a relentless crusader against injustice and inequality and an apostle of communal harmony and peace.
