A meeting was held on Mar. 16 at the Institution of Engineers in city to condole the death of J.K. Organisations President Padmabhushan Hari Shankar Singhania who passed away on Feb. 22.

MLA H.S. Shankaralingegowda, while offering condolences at the meet organised by Mysore Industries Association (MIA) said: “A person with principles will become divine soul and Hari Shankar Singhania who revived J.K. Tyres and provided employment to thousands has certainly become divine in our eyes.”

MLA Sathyanarayana added the immense contribution of Singhania to industry cannot be measured. In Mysore many industries became sick and closed. J.K. Tyres also had reached the stage of closure. At that period J.K. Groups headed by Singhania took the responsibility and converted it into a progressive industry. Presently J.K. Tyres are exported to more than sixty countries. An estimated 5 lakh share holders are deriving the benefit of this company, the MLA said.

At the beginning of the meeting, two minutes silence was observed to pay homage to the departed soul.

MIA President P. Vishwanath, General Secretary Suresh Kumar Jain, J.K. Tyres General Manager D.D. Bhat, VITC- Export Information Centre Deputy Director M.N. Murulesh, Metagalli Industries Association former President P.S. Chandrashekar, Triton Valves General Manager Vijaykumar B. Kamalapure, Institution of Engineers Chairman Dr. Ananthapadmanabha, MCCI Vice-President A.N. Satish and ISHRAE President Shreeshail Ramannavar too lauded the services of Singhania in making J.K. Tyre globally competitive.
