Tall leader – The Hindu

In the demise of Era Sezhiyan, the nation has lost an affable, unassuming and knowledgeable parliamentarian who stood tall among political leaders and was loved by all irrespective of party affiliation. On more than one occasion he refused to accept positions of power. He was an authority on parliamentary procedures and Speakers often looked up to him for clarifications and advice from time to time in exigencies. Leaders like Sezhiyan who maintained unquestionable probity in public life are difficult to come by in the present political scenario.
