Comrade Chitta Dey (86) the senior leader and member of the national executive committee of Samajwadi Jana Parishad bodily left us today morning 3 o'clock at Jalpaiguri , West Bengal. He was leading the trade union of the workers of tea gardens of north Bengal. He was a senior leader of the H M S the central trade union. Even at the age of 86 he came to Kottayam for attending the last National Conference of Samajwadi Janparishad. Very actively attended the conference and addressed the conference thereby inspired the comrades. A highly idealist socialist he dedicated his whole life till his last breath for the socialist movement. Finally he joined Samajwadi Janparishad the new stage of the socialist movement which is an attempt of providing a new dimension to the socialist movement and ideology. Even though he was from old school of socialist movement he realised the significance and relevance of a new kind of socialist movement and so that he preferred to keep away from established political parties and joined Janparishad which stands for a radical change. After he was became a member of national executive committee member of the party he was very particular in attending it. But unfortunately he has had some fracture he extended his leave in advance. I have got two or three times opportunity to visit the tea garden workers' union office at Jalpaiguri where he was staying too. Chitho Dey lead a very simple life. His idealist life will be an inspiration to the generations of the coming days. His unexpected demise is a great loss to Samajwadi Janparishad , workers movement and idealistic politics. I express my deep condolences in his sad demise.
