A Sankalp Sabha was organized on 1 April 2017 in Dama (Aura) in Bagodar (Giridih)on the 4th anniversary of Com. Doman Mahto’s death. Com. Doman had always been at the forefront of social and political struggles. The meeting was attended by hundreds of people from the villages including women and children. Addressing the meeting, Com. Vinod Singh said that Com Doman Mahto was always active in people’s struggles and stood with the rural poor at all times. He mobilized the villagers and women and led their protest against police repression in the Dama incident, for which he, along with a dozen other activists, had to undergo imprisonment. Even today one of his comrades is serving life sentence in this case. He said that the true tribute to Com Doman would be to carry forward his struggle against the communal and pro-corporate policies of the BJP government.
