KOCHI: The journalist and author V.K. Madhavankutty, who died on Tuesday evening in Delhi, was mourned by journalists, politicians and former colleagues at a meeting at the Ernakulam Press Club on Wednesday.
KPCC president Ramesh Chennithala recalled his long association with Madhavankutty and pointed out that he was witness to, and sometimes part of, several important decisions concerning the country. Madhavankutty was instrumental in getting V.K. Krishna Menon's statue installed in Delhi, he said.
P. Rajiv, Deshabhimani's resident editor, said Madhavankutty had very wide circle of friends and contacts. K.P. Vijayan, former deputy editor of the Mathrubhumi, said Madhavankutty was very close to the late Defence Minister. K.G. Jyothir Ghosh, news editor of the Mathrubhumi here, recalled that Madhavankutty was instrumental in fielding K.R. Narayanan in the Lok Sabha election in Ottappalam, which later on led to his being elevated to the President of India. J.S. Indukumar, coordinating editor, Asianet, pointed out how Madhavankutty meticulously kept in touch with a wide network of friends and contacts. The Press Club president P.K. Phalgunan and the secretary V.R. Rajamohan offered homage.
