Manipur broke into celebration on Sunday after the Centre renamed the Andaman and Nicobar Islands’ ‘Mount Harriet‘, where Manipur’s Maharaja Kulchandra Dhwaj Singh and 22 other freedom fighters were imprisoned, as ‘Mount Manipur‘ in their honour.

Manipur Chief Minister N. Biren Singh said government has asked people to organise candlelight celebration to express to Prime minister Narendra Modi and Union Home Minister Amit Shah for renaming the ‘Mount Harriet National Park’ as ‘Mount Manipur National Park’ in memory of the freedom fighters of the state.

The Chief Minister tweeted: “In a fitting tribute to Maharaja Kulachandra and other Manipuri freedom fighters imprisoned at Mount Harriet in Kalapani, Home Minister Amit Shah ji has renamed Mount Harriet as Mount Manipur. We’re immensely thankful to PM Narendra Modi Ji & Amit Shah Ji for such a great honour of our heroes.”

“Further HM Amit Shah Ji has also announced that the Central Govt will assist Manipur in establishing a memorial site at Mount Manipur in Andaman Nicobar Island. The process for signing lease agreement between Andaman Government and Manipur Government is under process,” Singh said in another tweet.

Union Home Minister said, “Manipur never gave up and the people there continued to fight. Manipur was the only state that had implemented its own constitution. Though Manipur was under British occupation for a long time, the Freedom Fighters of Manipur always fought the British tooth and nail in battle. Manipuri war hero Yuvraj Tikendrajit and General Thangal were publicly hanged at Fida in Imphal. The British thought that by hanging them, they had crushed the freedom movement, but it did not happen. After that Maharaja Kulchandra Dhwaja Singh and 22 freedom fighters were sent to Kala Pani and they were kept in Mount Harriet Island. ”

Shah said that in memory of Maharaja Kulchandra Dhwaja Singh and to honour his contribution, Mount Harriet is renamed as Mount Manipur.
