CM, Governor condole death of Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi

CM, Governor condole death of Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi”

In the nine years that Dasmunsi spent in a comatose condition, his world - the Congress party and the state of West Bengal - changed in ways the veteran politician, who served four terms in Lok Sabha beginning 1971, would have found hard to imagine.

Sources in the hospital say that Dasmunsi died of cardiac arrest after his chest infection worsened last week. He had suffered a massive stroke which resulted in paralysis in October 2008 and then went into coma.

He was initially treated at the All-India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) and later shifted to a private hospital in Delhi.

Dasmunsi took charge of the AIFF in December 1988 and served as the president of the Indian FA for 20 long years. During the tumultuous days of student politics in the late sixties and the early seventies, Subrata Mukherjee and Dasmunsi were considered firebrand leaders of Bengal. "I have many fond memories of Priyada".

"I still remember when I went to file my nomination for the student union election at Asutosh College for the first time, Dasmunsi searched for me. he encouraged me to join student politics", says state parliamentary affairs minister Partha Chatterjee.

Known as "Priya" in West Bengal's political circle, he had been information and broadcasting minister.

Information Minister Hasanul Inu has also expressed condolence over his passing. "He had a charismatic personality", Chatterjee said.

In 2008, even the most optimistic Congressman would have been doubtful the party would return to power in next year's Lok Sabha elections.

In another message, Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal mourned the demise of former Union Minister Priya Ranjan Dasmunsi. It would then be flown to his constituency Raigunj for final rites.
