With a mission to obtain the document of the land allocated in Andaman and Nicobar Island to the Preservation Committee of Deported Manipuri War Heroes Andaman Nicobar Islands, a six-member team of the committee left Imphal for Andaman and Nicobar on Thursday.
The team, led by president of the committee, Yumnam Tomba, before leaving Imphal, briefed the media at Manipur Press Club on the details of their trip.
Tomba informed that the Andaman and Nicobar government allocated land measuring 2,000 square feet at Goodwill Estate to the committee on July 27, 2019 for construction of a memorial site of the 23 deported war heroes of Manipur, including Maharaja Kulachandra.
As the committee has not obtained the legal paper of the allocated land, the trip is specifically planned to obtain the legal paper of the land, he said.
"Like the Japanese who come to Manipur to honour their soldiers who laid down lives in the state during World War II, it is also our duty to honour our war fore-fathers who laid down their lives in fight for the motherland," he added.
