The Indian Federation of Working Journalists (I.F.W.J.) deeply mourns the sad death this morning of its leader Com.Vishwas Kumar Sharma, former chief reporter of the Rajasthan Patrika and the daily Ambar in Jaipur. He was suffering from cancer. The I.F.W.J. President K Vikram Rao, its Secretary General Com. H.B. Madan Gowda (Karnataka) and its Secretary (Headquarters) New Delhi Com. Vipin Dhuliya recalled the tremendous services of Com.
Vishwas Sharma to the cause of working journalists. He was elected thrice the general secretary of the Rajasthan Working Journalists Union. He led RWJU delegations to IFWJ conferences many times. Com.Vishwas had represented the IFWJ in international conference in Prague(Czech Republic) and in Bratislava(Slovakia). His importance as a journalist was realized before his visit abroad. His passport did not have the official stamp of “immigration check not required”.
This meant that no visa could be issued. He landed in New Delhi on a public holiday. But then the foreign minister, Kunwar Natwar Singh, had got the office of the Regional Passport Officer opened and got Vishwas Sharma’s travel documents stamped. The IFWJ Working Committee meeting scheduled to be held in Andhra Pradesh next month will have its mandap named after Com.Vishwas Kumar Sharma, announced the Secretary
