It is with deep sorrow ,we convey the demise of Com. G.S.Gnanam, former Secretary General of Confederation of Central Government employees and workers. Com. Gnanam was admitted to a private nursing home at Chennai due to old age illness. He breathed his last yesterday.
Com. Gnanam was elected as the General Secretary of Income-tax Employees Federation in 1967 and later became the Secretary General of Confederation. He was responsible in bringing about a vibrant and militant movement of Central Government employees under the auspices of Confederation of CGEs and workers. He became the Secretary General, when the employees were facing one of the worst repression unleashed by the Govt. Of India in the wake of the 1960 indefinite strike. Most of the organisations which participated in the strike and which were affiliate of the Confederation had been de-recognised by the Govt. Number of leaders had been dismissed and thousands of employees had been facing disciplinary proceedings. He provided leadership at a very crucial time of our movement.
We dip our flag and banner in memory of the great contribution of this comrade to the common movement of Central Government employees and convey our heartfelt condolences to the bereaved members of his family.
