Former Election Commissioner G.V.G. Krishnamurty handed away right here on Wednesday morning resulting from extended sickness. He was 86.
Krishnamurty handed away about 10 a.m. resulting from age-related illnesses. He is survived by his spouse Padma Murty, son and senior Supreme Court advocate G.V. Rao, and daughter Dr. Radha Bodapati.
Mourning the lack of an illustrious former member of the ECI household, Chief Election Commissioner Sushil Chandra recalled that Krishnamurty “made an exemplary contribution during his tenure in the Commission as Election Commissioner from October 1, 1993, to September 30, 1996”.
“His contribution particularly in strengthening laws and procedures of conducting elections will be long remembered by the commission.”
Krishnamurty’s final rites have been held at Lodhi Road crematorium right here within the metropolis. A wreath was laid in tribute on behalf of the ECI.
