Former Madhya Pradesh minister and noted freedom fighter Ramlal Chandrakar passed away at his Choubey Colony residence here today after a prolonged illness. He was 89.

He is survived by four sons and as many daughters.

A minister in the Saklecha government in the undivided Madhya Pradesh, Ramlal was bed-ridden for the last few months, family sources said. In 1977, the freedom fighter was elected to the Madhya Pradesh Assembly from Mandir Hasaud constituency in Raipur and later inducted into the Saklecha ministry.

A socialist leader, Ramlal actively took part in the freedom movement along with Loknayak Jai Prakash Narayan and J P Kriplani and was imprisoned for 20 months during the emergency. He also worked for Acharya Vinoba Bhabe's Bhoodan Movement.

Chhattisgarh Chief Minister Raman Singh expressed his grief over the death of the freedom fighter.

In his condolence message, the Chief Minister said Ramlal would always be remembered for his contribution to the freedom struggle as well as the movement launched to safeguard democracy during the emergency.

Former chief minister Ajit Jogi also condoled Ramlal's death saying that the latter dedicated his life for the uplift of the downtrodden and poor of the state.
