One-day national dialogue on tribal heroes held in Manipur
Imphal, Sep. 29 (EMN): Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh has re-assured that the state government is ready to recognise every unsung hero who had fought against British colonialism and was involved in the freedom struggle as the government had done in the past.
Biren Singh was speaking at the one-day national dialogue on Tribal Heroes in India’s Freedom Struggle organised by National Commission for Scheduled Tribes (NCST) as a part of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav at Manipur University campus in Imphal on Thursday.
Stating that everyone who had contributed to achieve freedom should be honoured, he said that after Narendra Modi became India’s Prime Minister in 2014, the central government has taken up initiative at micro level to recognize all the unsung heroes of India’s Freedom Struggle.
Mentioning that an Indian Coast Guard Ship was named after the state’s freedom fighter Rani Gaidinliu, he stated that it was the right time to research and bring up the name of every unsung hero who took part in the freedom struggle and honour them.
The National Dialogue on Tribal Heroes in India’s Freedom Struggle is being organised across the country in 125 universities to remember the unforgettable contribution of tribal heroes in the freedom struggle. Its purpose is also to introduce the tribal youth to the contributions and sacrifices of the tribal community in the freedom struggle.
