He was 78.
Assam Governor Jagdish Mukhi, Chief Minister Sarbananda Sonowal, Finance Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma, former Chief Minister Tarun Gogoi, Leader of the Opposition Debabrata Saikia and others condoled the demise of the CPI leader.
"Saddened to know the death of Drupad Borgohain, a veteran mass leader who championed the cause of politics with an undertone of peoples development. His death will definitely create void in socio-political spectrum of the state which will be hard to be filled," Mukhi said.
The Congress, AASU, AJYCP, KMSS and many other social organisations have condoled the death of Borgohain.
After that, the body was taken to his hometown Nazira and the last rites were performed there.
Born on November 7, 1941, Borgohain was a teacher by profession and started his career at the Maduri Middle Vernacular School in Sivasagar. He resigned from the teaching job to become a party whole-timer in 1982.
