Comrade Dhurjoti Dash Central Committee member and Odisha State Secretary Passes away


Comrade Dhurjoti Dash, Central Committee member and Odisha State Secretary of our Party breathed his last on 24 June, 2021 at 2-45 p.m. at the age of 66.
Comrade Dhurjoti Dash was admitted in Calcutta Heart Clinic and Hospital on 3 June 2021 with a history of severe low back pain for more than 15 days. He had recently suffered from Covid -19-induced pneumonia (mild infection) and recovered from it. But he was suffering from multi-organ dysfunction as a consequence of very aggressive advanced malignancy. He expired today due to cardio-respiratory failure following gastrointestinal sepsis with septic shock and multi-organ dysfunction syndrome under the background of metastatic hepatocellular Carcinoma. Despite untiring efforts of the doctors, nurses and medical staff Comrade Dhurjoti Dash could not be saved.
His body was brought to the Central Office in Kolkata on the same day around 7.30 pm. Floral tribute was paid to him on behalf of Comrade Provash Ghosh, General Secretary as well as Comrades Manik Mukherjee and Asit Bhattacharyya, veteran Polit bureau members of our Party. Other Polit Bureau and Central Committee members present there also bid him adieu by placing floral wreaths. After that, his body was taken to Bhubaneswar office the same night. There many comrades from different districts of Odisha had assembled to have a last glimpse of their beloved and respected leader and pay revolutionary tribute to him. His body was kept on a red pulpit bedecked with flower. Grief-stricken Odisha state Committee members and other leaders as well as comrades, leaders of the mass and class fronts, common people and many eminent intellectuals placed wreaths on his body as a mark of respect. Among those who offered him floral tribute there were Comrades Chandidas Bhattacharyya, Central Committee member and West Bengal State Secretary and Shankar Dasgupta, Central Committee member and General Secretary, AIUTUC. Komsomol members pad guard of honour. Then his pier carrying his body was taken to the crematorium amidst rendering of the song on Comrade Shibdas Ghosh, our leader, teacher and guide. Because of pandemic situation, thousands of more comrades, common masses and his admirers could not participate in his last journey. In his demise, the Party lost a very valuable leader.
An online memorial meeting of Comrade Dhurjoti Dash would be held on 9 July 2021. It would be addressed by our beloved General Secretary Comrade Provash Ghosh.
Red salute Comrade Dhurjoti Dash
