Today is a day of mixed emotions. At the crack of the dawn I woke up early to learn about the tragic death of Samajwadi Party old timer, MLC and a key organization man SRS Babuji. By all means, his departure for the land of silent majority has created a deep void in the socialist movement. I mourn the loss alongside tens of millions of socialist workers who are feeling crestfallen with the SRS Babuji crossing over the rainbow Bridge. Rest in peace and power.
Samajwadi Party national president Akhilesh Yadav has condoled the tragedy by terming it an irreparable loss for the Samajwadi movement.
