Fiji Labour Party mourns the death of former Ra Parliamentarian and Party stalwart Sanjeet Maharaj who passed away at his home in Ellington, Ra, this morning.
58-year-old Maharaj who was a cane farmer, served as President of the National Farmers Union for a number of years.
Sanjeet Maharaj first stood for parliamentary elections on a Labour ticket
in 1999 but lost narrowly. In 2001 he won the Ra Indian communal seat and was re-elected from the same seat in the 2006 general elections.
Labour Leader Mahendra Chaudhry says Maharaj would be sorely missed by the Party.
Funeral arrangements will be announced later.
