It is with a heavy heart that we inform you about the passing away of NUSI
President Dr. Shanti Patel who passed away 13th June 2014 morning around 5:00
am. He was 93.
Dr. Shanti Patel, veteran freedom fighter, was a champion of the cause of the
workers movement nationally and internationally. He always stood strongly
behind workers and particularly the seafarers. He was President of NUSI since
more than 40 years.
Under his guidance, NUSI reached great heights in terms of safeguarding the
interest of the seafarers and played a positive role in the development of the
Indian shipping fraternity.
On behalf of the NUSI and thousands of Indian seafarers and well wishers from
the Indian shipping fraternity, We offer our deep condolences to his family
members to bear this great loss.
