S. R. Sankaran a saint: Dr. JP

Mr. S. R. Sankaran was a saint among officials who fought for the welfare of Dalits, Girijans, and the poor, said Lok Satta Party President Dr. Jayaprakash Narayan.

 

Condoling with the death of the retired IAS officer, Dr. JP said Mr. Sankaran was known for his lofty ideals and unimpeachable integrity and practicing what he preached. He was a rare humanist among senior officials of post-Independent India.

 

Dr. JP regretted that successive Governments and politicians had not given him due recognition and officials who should have emulated him became partisan in their functioning. Mr. Sankaran’s death was a loss not merely to the State but the entire country.
