Freedom fighter Subramaniya Shenoy cremated

The mortal remains of the veteran freedom fighter and long time communist leader N Subramaniya Shenoy were cremated with full State honours at the CPI(M) office premises in Maavicherry near here at 10 a.m. on Wednesday. Shenoy was known for his struggle for the poor and his simple life. He passed away at a hospital in Payyannur on Tuesday afternoon.

Subramaniya Shenoy's life was closely associated with Congress after organising a meeting attended by Jawaharlal Nehru in Payyannur as part of the freedom struggle.

He led a students protest march to condemn the death sentence of Bhagat Singh in 1931.

In 1934, he was elected Payyannur Comgress Committee joint secretary.

Later he became a founder member of the Communist party when it was formed in 1939 and led many struggles for the uplift of agriculture and beedi workers and economically backward people in the state.

The 93-year old Shenoy is survived by his wife, three sons and five daughters.
