RIP – S. Balakrishnan

Former Opposition Leader in Tamil Nadu assembly and senior Congress leader S Balakrishnan died yesterday in his native village in Ramanathapuram district. He had suffered serious injuries during an accident in 2005 and was bed-ridden ever since. He had been undergoing medical treatment for more than a year. He is survived by his wife, and four sons.

S Balakrishnan popularly known as SoBa was the leader of Congress Legislature party between 1996-2001. Altogether he was elected as an MLA for four terms. He was a close confident of the late GK Moppanar and was part of the Tamil Manalia Congress. Balakrishnan was also a well know orator. His demise is certainly a big loss for the Tamil Nadu Congress.
