PPP/C’s ‘Majeed’ dies; hailed as an ‘outstanding foot soldier and workhorse’
The People’s Progressive Party Civic (PPP/C) on Saturday confirmed the passing of one of its leaders, Majeed Hussain, who died early this morning.
According to reports from persons close to Hussain, he died from COVID-19 complications.
Hussain served the PPP in various capacities and was a member of the Central Committee.
“He was a true patriot,” the PPP said in a statement as it expressed its deepest condolences to the family and relatives of Hussain and the members of the PPP family who knew and loved “this friendly and humble leader.”
But a more touching reflection came from Attorney General, Anil Nandlall who also served alongside Hussain in the PPP.
Nandlall said Hussain will feature as prominent as any.
“He was your proverbial workhorse, he was an outstanding political foot soldier, he was a leader.
He was always ready upon call, without excuse or hesitation, despite the hour,” Nandlall posted on his Facebook page
Like the PPP party, Nandlall reflected on Hussain’s most recent involvement in the March 2, 2020, General and Regional Elections.
He concluded that “in its aftermath, this unprecedented ordeal has produced a great many heroes. Many of whom are left unsung. Hopefully, sooner than later, this epoch will be analyzed and properly documented for posterity and the contributions of so many recognized and put into perspective.”
Nandlall said during the five months that followed the March 02 elections, not only was Hussain a leader of the group who guarded the containers with the ballot boxes, 24 hours per day, but he was the Commissioner of Oaths to Affidavits and Justice of Peace who sat with him, sometimes all night and into daylight hours, to swear the numerous Affidavits which had to be filed in the series of litigation which permeated that period.
