Senior Co-operator from Uttarakhand Pramod Kumar Singh died of Covid-19 in the early hours of Monday (today). He was 61. Being on the boards of both NCUI and IFFCO, Singh was known to all.
Singh died at Max Hospital in Dehradun, Uttarakhand. He was admitted to the hospital a few days ago after testing positive for Covid-19. Singh had co-morbidity in the sense that a few years ago he had got his kidney transplanted.
A shocked IFFCO MD Dr U S Awasthi expressed his grief “Saddened & shocked by the sad demise of Sh. Pramod Kumar Singh, Director, IFFCO. He was one of the eminent cooperators & contributed a lot in growth & development of coops in India. May his soul rest in peace & God bestow enough strength to family to bear the loss. Om Shanti!”
Several cooperators took to social media offering their tributes to Singh. Co-operators remember him as soft-spoken, humble, and the one who always helped those in need.
A source said his wife and some other family members are being treated for the virus.
Pramod is credited with playing a crucial role in setting up the grand building of Uttarakhand Cooperative Federation in Dehradun.
