Noted labour activist and journalist Narendra Sharma passed away here on Sunday after a brief illness. He was 90. He is survived by his wife, a son and two daughters.

Mr. Sharma joined active politics while in college in Lahore (in present-day Pakistan) and worked for the cause of the common masses, especially the working class and the trade union movement.

A specialist of socialist politics, he was one of the most perceptive commentators on coalition politics during the 1970s. - PTI
