New Delhi: One of the most revered editors in the country and also an ex-Rajya Sabha MP, Chandan Mitra (66) passed away in New Delhi on Wednesday.

An alumnus of Kolkata’s La Martiniere School, Delhi’s St. Stephen’s College and UK’s Oxford University, Mitra during his illustrious career has worked with The Statesman, the Times of India, the Hindustan Times and took over The Pioneer which he revamped as the Managing Director, among others. The Howrah-born, who never concealed his pro-BJP affiliations was nominated twice to the Rajya Sabha (2003 and 2010) from the saffron party. His loyalty for the BJP earned him his first Lok Sabha ticket from Hooghly in 2014, but he lost the polls. In 2018, he shifted loyalty to TMC.

President Ram Nath Kovind and Prime Minister Narendra Modi have expressed their grief on Mitra’s demise.
