On April 14, 1944, the Indian National Army (INA), headed by Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, hoisted the Tricolour Flag of Free India for the first time.
"After Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose hoisted the tricolor flag for the first time here at Moirang, Manipur in 1944, history has been scripted again today as Hon’ble Union Minister, Shri @AmitShah ji unfurled the flag on the 165 feet, tallest flagpole in North-East India," Manipur Chief Minister N Biren Singh tweeted.
The Manipur chief minister expressed hope that the unfurling of the tallest National Flag by the union home minister will renew the sense of patriotism among the youths.
"Thank you, Hon’ble Union HM Shri @AmitShah Ji,for unfurling the tallest National Flag in the North-East. This will renew the sense of patriotism & educate the new generations about freedom fighters and their sacrifices," CM Biren said in another tweet.
