Com. Rajnandan Sharma (lovingly known as Master Saheb) died in a hospital in Patna at the age of 83 at around 2 am in the morning of 3 August. He had been battling respiratory problems for a long time. Master Saheb worked as a teacher in the Khagaul (Danapur Rail Division), even as he remained active with the Party right from the days of the party’s initial difficult phase. Always a committed member, he shall be missed. Red Salute to Master Saheb!
