I am deeply shocked to hear of the said demise this morning of my dear friend and colleague in the Peoples Union for Civil Liberties Dr. Yashpal Chhibbar, after a brief illness.
Dr. Chhibbar, a Professor in Economics in Delhi University, was a founding member of the Peoples Union for Civil Liberties and its General Secretary for over two decades.He was a follower of Jaya Prakash Narayana and a Sociologist.From 1978 onwards Dr. Chhibbar managed the National Office of Peoples Union for Civil Liberties located in his residence and edited the PUCL Bulletin.
He was responsible for advising State Units, building the archive of the Peoples Union for Civil Liberties and organizing its Annual Lecture Series.The Civil Liberties Union of India and Peoples Union for Civil Liberties has lost a committed leader and a campaigner of Human Rights.
