By Our Correspondent

Agartala June 12 ,2019 : Veteran journalist and news editor of 'Daily Desher Katha', state CPI (M)’s party organ, breathed his last in the ICU of GBP hospital after a brief illness. He was sixty eight and is survived only by his wife. The news of Milan De Sarkar's death has come as a big shock to Tripura's media community as he was known to be a perfect gentleman and knowledgeable about the profession of journalism. 

Milan had joined the then daily 'Jana Jug' newspaper as a senior sub-editor in late 1974 and contributed richly to the growing popularity of the newspaper. After a few years 'Jana Jug' was renamed 'Tripura Darpan' but Milan De Sarkar continued his service in late seventies before joining 'Daily Desher Katha' where be became a news editor.
A man known for his amiable and soft-spoken nature Milan’s popularity transcended political and other barriers. How he was not mindful of his health condition despite being a patient of high sugar. It was late last week that he was diagnosed as having deep infection of urine and kidney and his colleagues in 'Daily Deskher Katha' practically took him by force to GBP hospital where he was shifted to ICU. But the infection was so deep that his condition could not be improved and he breathed his last this morning. Milan’s mortal remains were brought to Agartala Press Club and all senior journalists of the state including the editor-proprietor of 'Syandan Patrika' Subal Dey paid their last floral tributes to Milan.

Meanwhile, another journalist of yesteryears, Debajyoti Chakraborty of 'Dainik Sambad' died last night after a protracted bout of illness that had confined him to bed for a long period. At one stage of his career Debajyoti had been the chief sub-editor of 'Dainik Sambad' for several years before joining the ICA department as reporter in 1988. After retirement he fell ill and expired last night.
