Com. MP Sinha

Comrade MP Sinha, a former Vice-President of the Indian People’s Front in Bihar passed away in Patna on 5 October 2013 at the age of 89 after a long illness of several months. He had suffered a paralytic stroke while undergoing dialysis for renal failure. Com. Sinha had joined the Communist movement in 1943 and remained associated with the CPI journal Janshakti till 1948. While being in government service subsequently for four decades, he retained his Marxist commitment. In the 1970s he was involved with the Marxist Coordination Committee and from mid-1980s onward he became active in Indian People’s Front, the CPI(ML)-led revolutionary democratic front. He was elected a Vice-President of the IPF in Bihar. His house served as a regular centre of IPF activities and meetings and he played a significant role in popularising the IPF in sections of the Patna intelligentsia. Even after the dissolution of the IPF in the early 1990s, Comrade Sinha remained a committed well-wisher and friend of the CPI(ML) and the revolutionary Left camp in Bihar. Liberation condoles his passing and pays homage to his memory.
