A man of many parts, Veerendra Kumar was an acclaimed socialist, author and thinker who led several parties like the JD-U too. Vice-President M Venkaiah Naidu said in his condolence message that the Managing Director of Mathrubhoomi "was always deeply committed to the cause of the deprived and marginalised."

KOZHIKODE, May 29: Rajya Sabha member and former Union Minister MP Veerendra Kumar passed away on Thursday at a hospital here following cardiac arrest. He died at the age of 83. He was Managing Director of Malayalam daily Mathrubhoomi and a member of PTI's Board of Directors.

An acclaimed author and thinker, he was a socialist leader in Kerala's politics who had headed several parties like Janata Dal (U). He had also served as the president of the Indian Newspaper Sociey.

He was elected to the Rajya Sabha in March 2018 as a Left Democratic Front-backed Independent candidate.
