Imphal, April 15 2018: Remembering the historic moment when the tri-colour flag of India was first hoisted on this soil on the 14th April, 1944 that marked the beginning of the end of British Rule, Governor Dr.Najma Heptulla stated that the occasion evokes a deep feeling of pride in her because the INA traversed through the State of Manipur on its historic campaign to Free India from the British on the call given by Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose.

"The occasion carries a special meaning for me as my grand uncle, Maulana Abul Kalam Saheb was also a freedom fighter for India's Independence, a contemporary of Netaji", Dr.Heptulla said.

The Governor of Manipur also wished the people of Manipur - a very happy new year on the occasion of Cheiraoba and also congratulated pugilist MC Mary Kom on winning gold in the women's 48 kg boxing final held last Saturday at the Commonwealth Games in Australia.
