Imphal, August 3: Art & Culture Minister, L. Jayantakumar Singh today said four museums in the state will be soon upgraded to the international standard. The four museums included INA museum at Moirang, Manipur State Museum, Imphal and two museums inside Kangla.
He was speaking as Chief Guest at the launching of two day National Seminar on INA and North East India held at INA
Martyrs’ Complex, Moirang in connection with the commemoration of 75th Anniversary of Indian national Army and Provisional Government of Free United India which is being organised by Maulana Abul Kalam Institute of Asian Studies, MAKAIAS, Kolkata. The Minister said that despite being an intrinsic part of the Indian Freedom Struggle, the historical significance of Moirang is unfortunately unknown to many people in our country. There is a need to propagate and create awareness on the significance of Moirang to the people of mainland India and beyond, he added.
The Minister said that the two day National Seminar relating to INA and North East India will be a great historical moment which aims to cover the initial days of the INA, Japanese military intelligence operation and arrival of Netaji Subhachandra Bose and the enlarged INA and United Free India Provisional Government under his leadership.
