SH. VISHWA BANDHU GUPTA (1927-2020), PRESIDENT OF LOK KALYAN SAMITI, FORMER CONGRESS MP AND AINEC PRESIDENT PASSES AWAY.

Our dear President Shri Vishwa Bandhu Gupta Ji, the eldest son of well-known National Congress Leader Lala Deshbandhu Gupta, passed away peacefully on the night of 21st June at the age of 93. He was former MP and a prominent media personality. He was the Chairman of Tej-Bandhu group of media enterprises and Editor-in-Chief of the group’s publications viz The Daily Tej newspaper, DIWANA magazine, The Weekly Sun, The North-East Sun, Treasure monthly and Flash newspaper. In addition to these serious roles, he was a true adventurer at heart. He loved gliding and Hot-Air Ballooning.

Combining in himself the facets of a Parliamentarian, an Editor, Media policy-maker and an Adventurist, Mr. Gupta, played an important role of being a bridge between the Media, Political policy-makers and Adventure Sports. He lived firmly by the nationalistic values of Mahatma Gandhi, Pt. Nehru and the great leaders from the freedom struggle of India.

Late Shri Vishwa Bandhu Gupta Ji was a founder member of Lok Kalyan Samiti and one of the twelve original associates of Late Sh. Kalyan Singh Gupta (the founder General Secretary of Lok Kalyan Samiti) and was also associated with LKS since its inception as a very active supporter of LKS activities. The LKS fraternity will always remember Shri Vishwa Bandhu Gupta Ji as a “KARMYOGI” who committed his life to the betterment of the down-trodden through his association as a President of LKS.
