Written By : SUN FIJI NEWSROOM. The Fiji Labour Party is mourning the passing away of its former parliamentarian Anand Babla.
Babla, 54, passed away in Chennai, India on Monday while undergoing medical treatment.
FLP leader Mahendra Chaudhry said Babla was a successful cane farmer and social worker.
Mr Babla had been the MP for the Tavua Indian Communal Constituency since 1992. He was a secretary of the Tavua branch of the FLP, the National Farmers Union, and manager of the Balata primary and secondary schools in Tavua.
“Anand was pretty much a grassroots person, very well respected and liked in his community,” Mr Chaudhry said.
“It is proof of his tremendous popularity that Mr Babla retained his parliamentary seat in five successive general elections and always winning with a landslide majority.” Mr Chaudhry said Mr Babla was a dedicative party activist and he had worked tirelessly to promote the cause of farmers and the ordinary people.
A condolence gathering in his honour will be held at the Tavua on December 27. Mr Babla is survived by his wife, two daughters and a son.
