Communist Party of India (CPI) leader Govind Pansare (82), who was critically wounded by gunshots in Kolhapur, Maharashtra, was airlifted to Mumbai for advanced treatment. Unfortunately, Pansare who was shot in the lungs, did not survive.


His death was mourned by the many thousands who attended his funeral.  While the Maharashtra government, headed by BJP, condemned the shooting and vowed to nab the culprits, everyone knows where the inspiration for those who commit such dastardly acts, such as the murder of Dr. Dabholkar earlier and Com. Pansare, comes from – the same fetid pool of Hindutva thinking as Godse and Apte who murdered Mahatma Gandhi.
