Mahato had been unwell for the past few months, and his health took a turn for the worse during the budget session of the assembly on March 14. He was immediately admitted to Paras Hospital in Ranchi, but on the advice of CM Soren, he was airlifted to Chennai for further treatment. Despite the best efforts of the doctors, Mahato passed away on Thursday.
