LUCKNOW || T S Mehta, an old-school socialist and a close aide of former union defence minister Mulayam Singh Yadav, passed away in the state capital on Saturday.
He was 80-plus and had not been keeping well for a considerable time. For a very long time, he took care of the Lohia Trust and was the media advisor to Mulayam when he was the chief minister.
Well read and suave, Mehta was a mine of information of the socialist movement and had endeared himself to a lot of journalists of that time.
He worked for the UP Information and PR department as deputy director. Samajwadi Party (SP) tweeted its condolences on the passing away of Mehta.
