Yashpal Chibber

I am deeply shocked to hear of the demise of my dear friend and colleague in the People’s Union for Civil Liberties (PUCL), Yashpal Chibber, after a brief illness. Chibber, a professor of economics in Delhi University, was a founding member of the PUCL and its general secretary for over two decades. He was a follower of Jayaprakash Narayan.

From 1978 onwards Chibber managed the National Office of the PUCL, located in his residence and edited the pucl Bulletin. He was responsible for advising state units, building the archive of the PUCL, and organising its Annual Lecture Series. The Civil Liberties Union of India and the PUCL has lost a committed leader and campaigner of human rights.
