Red Salute to Comrade Prakash Sathi

Comrade Prakash, 54, popularly known as Prakash Sathi, died of kidney failure in Nainital on 19 October. A member since the 80s, he joined the movement in his mid-teens during a peasant struggle held in Dhauladevi block of Almora district. Then onwards he remained committed to the party and the people. He came to Nainital during his youth for a livelihood and ran a small dhaba and tea stall which soon turned into a joint for intellectual and political discussions for many shades of activists, workers and university students. Comrade Prakash was a permanent face in all people’s struggles and protests in Nainital during the nineties and later. 

His passing is a big loss for the social and political movements and, also, a personal loss for many activists with whom he was so closely associated. A large number of people and his family and relatives bid him final farewell offering a red flag in his last journey which was attended by comrades Raja Bahuguna, Chairperson, Central Control Commission of CPIML, Veteran peasant leader Bahadur Singh Jangi, party’s Nainital city secretary Kailash Joshi, district secretary Kailash Pandey, Advocates Durga Singh Mehta and Rohit and many others.
