Thiruvananthapuram: Senior leader of Kerala politics KR Gowriamma (101) passed away here today. She was admitted to the intensive care unit of a private hospital in Thiruvananthapuram due to high fever. KR Gowriamma, who was suffering from congenital diseases of old age, came to her relative’s house in Thiruvananthapuram from Chathanathe house in Alappuzha a few days ago.
The political history of Kerala is incomplete except for KR Gowriamma, who entered the public service through student politics and the communist movement. KR Gauri was a revolutionary star who shone in Kerala politics for decades from the late fifties.
