Agra mourns death of veteran socialist

IANS  |  Agra 

Socialists and activists associated with the JP movement of the 1970s on Wednesday condoled the death of veteran socialist leader Shyam Dutt Paliwal, who died in a hospital earlier in the day. He was 87.

Paliwal was arrested during the 1975 Emergency and was an accused in the Baroda Dynamite Case in which George Fernandes was accused of trying to overthrow the Indira Gandhi government.

Paliwal was elected in 1977 to the Uttar Pradesh Assembly from Agra Rural (Dayalbagh constituency) on a Janata Party ticket.
