We are sad to inform that a senior journalist Shri Anil Mahatme passed away this morning after a brief illness. He was 67. Shri Mahatme was closely associated with the Indian Federation of Working Journalists as the President of the ‘Maharashtra Working Journalist Union’. He had helped the former Secretary General of the IFWJ Shri Manohar Andhare for preparing the case of journalists before Palekar and Bhachawat Wage Board.
At the instance of the former Vice-President, the late Shri Ram Gopal Sharma he again became active a decade back and used to attend the meetings of the IFWJ. He is survived by his wife Dr. Aasawari, son Abhinandan and two daughters. We pay our respectful homage to the late journalist and pray to God to provide enough strength to his family members to bear the irreparable loss.
