Com. Bhura Singh

Com. Bhura Singh, Mansa block President of All India Kisan Mahasabha, who had been sitting an indefinite dharna led by AIKM president Com. Ruldu Singh for the loan waiver of famers and peasants, passed away on 14 August, on the 134th day of the dharna owing to a heart attack. The comrades sitting with him rushed him to the hospital but doctors declared him dead. AIKM comrades forced the government to realise the gravity of the situation and the government decided to give 5 lakhs to his family, assured a job to a family member and promise withdrawal of his loans. Instead of cremation, his whole body was donated to the Patiala Hospital. Com. Bhura Singh, besides being the Mansa Block president of the All India Kisan Mahsabha, was also a member of tehsil Committee of CPI (ML). Revolutionary tribute to Com. Bhura Singh, the great martyr of the ongoing “karja-mafi movement”!
