Leaders pay homage to CPM leader Varadarajan
Chennai: Tamil Nadu Deputy Chief Minister M
K Stalin and state Communist leaders and workers on Tuesday paid
homage to CPI(M) leader W R Varadarajan, who was suspected to
have committed suicide.
The body of Varadarajan, recovered in a highly decomposed
state from a lake here, was kept at the party office for
Senior CPI(M) leaders including, state secretary G
Ramakrishnan, N Varadarajan and CPI leader R Nallakannu paid
their last respects to the departed soul.
64-year-old Varadarajan was reportedly upset over being
stripped of key party posts on charge of misconduct early this
month and his body was found a few days after he left home on
February 11, leaving two unsigned letters.
Varadarajan, a CPI-M Central Committee member, was
divested of all party posts for "conduct that was not in
conformity with Marxist principles".
On Sunday, Varadarajan`s wife Saraswathy identified his
highly decomposed body. Police said yesterday the identity
marks on the body tallied, confirming that it was Varadarajan.
The late CPI(M) leader had wished to donate his body for
medical research, but it would be cremated as it was highly
decomposed, party sources said.
