Extremely Sad News : Com. Umakanta Lenka, Postmaster, Balasore HO no more
We are extremely disheartened to know the sad demise of Com. Umakanta Lenka, 56, Postmaster, Balasore HO on 07.09.2020 morning.
As ascertained, Com. Lenka was on leave since last 10 days and under treatment for typhoid. Today (07.09.2020) morning, he experienced breathing problem and was admitted to Balasore District Headquarters Hospital where the doctor declared him as dead.
Com. Lenka has been left with his wife, one college going son and one college going daughter.
On his death, Odisha Postal Circle lost a very dynamic Postmaster and NFPE lost one of its branded bonafide comrades. Com. Lenka will be remembered for his devotion to duty, sincerity, integrity and belongingness both towards the Department and staff members. Though Com. Lenka primarily belongs to Balasore Division, he has successfully worked as Postmaster Baripada HO under Mayurbhanj Division and Postmaster, Bhubaneswar-2 MDG under Bhubaneswar Division before joining as Postmaster, Balasore HO. During his tenure as Postmaster, Baripada HO (2017), AIPEU, Group-C, Mayurbhanj Division has felicitated him as the best Postmaster in the presence and participation of the Circle Secretary, AIPEU, Group-C, Odisha Circle.
Deeply saddened, we, on behalf of NFPE, Odisha pay our respectful homages and convey our sincere condolences to the bereaved family members.
We pray Lord Jagannath to give courage to the bereaved family members to bear with this irreparable loss.
We also appeal our Divisional Secretary and other members to stand with the family and extend all possible help at this critical moment.
Let the divine soul rest in peace.
