Veteran journalist Badal Sanyal is no more

The Indian Journalists’ Association announces the sad demise of its former president and general secretary, Shri Badal Sanyal, in the small hours of Monday.
Badal Sanyal, 70, was admitted to NRS Hospital about five days back after he had a stroke. The end came this morning.
He was a well known business journalist who made his way up by working in smaller publications. He made a name for himself in Economic Times. When The Hindu Business Line launched a Kolkata edition in early 1990s, he was one of the top reporters from ET to join BL.
Apart from occupying key positions in IJA, Badal Sanyal took a lot of interest in the activities of IJA. He was one of the moving force behind the Platinum Jubilee celebrations of IJA. He was a vice-president then.
After retiring from HBL, Badal Saynal kept himself away from journalism and trade union activity.
Indian Journalists’ Association condoled the death of Badal Sanyal and sends its deepest condolences to his wife.
