எங்கள் பாரதம் சுகுமாரன் நம்பியாருக்கு தன் வணக்கத்தைத் தெரிவித்துக்கொள்கிறது.
M.N. Sukumaran Nambiar, believed to be the point man of BJP heavyweight L K Advani during the 1998 and 2004 Lok Sabha elections when the party struck a tie-up with the AIADMK, died on Sunday [8-1-2012] morning
A national executive member of the BJP and former treasurer of the party, Nambiar was the son of veteran Tamil actor M N Nambiar, a long-time friend of former chief minister M G Ramachandran and the present chief minister J Jayalalithaa. He had unsuccessfully contested from North Chennai constituency in the 2004 general elections, losing to DMK rival C Kuppuswamy.
“Engal Baratham” Tamil Magazine run by S.V.Ramani was also taken a part in the election propaganda of Sukumaran Nambiar during 2004. We are herewith showing the Magazine published during April 2004, which published the news and photo of Nambiar duly requesting the North Chennai people to elect him for the Lok Sabha.
Sukumaran Nambiar largely devoted himself to organizational work. Nambiar (64), an industrialist by profession, was a black belt holder in karate, martial arts instructor for Tamil Nadu police commandos and also served as president of the All India Ayyappa Seva Sangam. He is survived by his wife and two sons.
M.N.Sukumaran had held a press conference a few days ago at the state BJP moffice attacking the Centre for what he termed as its “passive” role in the Mullaperiyar dam controversy and had stressed the need for an amicable solution to the dispute to maintain harmony between people of the two states.
We have lost a true patriot and a person who untiringly served the society. We wish his name to be ever remembered by the people of India.
