Amit Shah Lays The Foundation Stone for the Rani Gaidinliu Tribal Freedom Fighters Museum in Manipur

Manipur, Nov 22: On Monday, Amit Shah stated that the government at the Centre and the N Biren Singh government in Manipur have made considerable improvements in the law and order situation, education, power, and other infrastructure sectors even as virtually establishing the foundation stone of the Rani Gaidinliu tribal freedom fighters’ museum in Manipur.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah praised the BJP government in Manipur for introducing peace and prosperity to the state during the previous five years, claiming that the state’s law and order situation has significantly improved.

He mentioned the promises they had made to stop bandhs, hartals, and blockades when they came to authority in Manipur. All three have come to an end, and the peace and order situation in Manipur has greatly improved.

When comparing the growth in Manipur during the last five years to the development over the preceding 70 years, the home minister claims that the recent five years have seen more growth.

According to Shah, in 2017, the BJP won the state of Manipur for the first time. After independence, the residents living in Manipur’s hill areas have believed that there is a national government that cares about their well-being.

Manipur’s assembly elections, as well as those in Uttar Pradesh, Uttarakhand, Punjab, and Goa, are scheduled for early next year. Shah also expressed high praise to Gaidinliu, saying that locals referred to her as ‘Rani’ in recognition of her involvement in the resistance to the British.

He claimed that the prime minister had released a Rs 100 currency at her birth centennial commemoration occasion in 2015, according to the home minister. In 2016, the Indian Coast Guard commissioned the ‘ICGS Rani Gaidinliu,’ a swift patrol vessel.

The Rani Gaidinliu tribal independence fighters museum will be established at Luangkao village in Manipur’s Tamenglong district, wherein she was born.

Although the Manipur chief minister, Union Tribal Affairs Minister Arjun Munda, as well as other dignitaries, are in Imphal for the event, Shah speaks from Delhi through video conference. The Ministry of Tribal Affairs has approved the museum project, which is expected to cost Rs 15 crore.

Meanwhile, on January 26, 1915, Rani Gaidinliu was born. She became involved with Haipou Jadonang, a spiritual leader and political activist from Manipur when she was 13 years old and served as his lieutenant in his social, religious, and political campaign.

Her four-year connection with Jadonang, which began in 1926, groomed her to be the British warrior. Gaidinliu became the movement’s head after Jadonang was executed by the British in 1931.

Following the martyrdom of Jadonang, Gaidinliu began a revolution against the British, for that she was imprisoned by the British for 14 years before being released in 1947.
