Comrade Ramdev Yadav

CPI(ML) leader Comrade Ramdev Yadav was shot dead on 11 November by assailants in Bihar’s Bhagalpur district. The armed assailants barged into Comrade Ramdev’s house and shot him dead while he was asleep. His home is close to the University police station. Comrade Ramdev, aged 60, was the CPI(ML)’s town committee member and veteran AICCTU leader (Vice President of the district’s AICCTU unit).

In protest against this heinous murder of Comrade Ramdev Yadav, the CPI(ML) called a Bhagalpur bandh. Schools, as well as streets and markets, remained closed in response to this bandh call. Comrade Ramdev was known to have taken up a range of struggles of the oppressed and downtrodden, and to have exposed instances of corruption and high-handedness of the local administration. Like Comrade Bhaiyyaram Yadav of Rohtas, Comrade Ramdev Yadav too has been targeted and eliminated at the behest of the powerful and corrupt.

Red Salute to Comrade Ramdev Yadav !
