Tamil Nadu MP M Selvaraj Dies At 67; “An Exemplary Leader,” Condoles CPI

Tamil Nadu MP M Selvaraj died early this morning at a private hospital in Chennai where he was undergoing treatment for kidney-related illnesses. The 67-year-old Nagapattinam MP had undergone a kidney transplant in the past.

The Communist Party of India veteran, who was also a farmer and social worker, has been a four-time MP. He was elected to the Lok Sabha in 1989, 1996, 1998, and 2019.

Condoling his death, CPI described him as “an exemplary leader”. The party said his final rites will be performed at the Sithamalli village in Thiruvarur district.

Tamil Nadu Chief Minister M K Stalin condoled Selvaraj’s death as an irreparable loss to the CPI as well as for the people of the delta districts.

This time, the CPI has fielded V Selvaraj from the Nagapattinam constituency.
