Manipur chief minister N Biren Singh announced that the tallest Indian national flag in the Northeast will be hoisted at Morang in the state.

The Manipur chief minister made the announcement after the successful installation of the tallest flagpole in Northeast India at Moirang.

Moirang is a small town under Manipur’s Bishnupur district and is situated approximately 45 km south of Imphal.

It was in Moirang where the flag of the Indian National Army (INA), led by Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, was hoisted for the first time on April 14, 1944.

While sharing a picture of the installation of the flagpole at Morang, chief minister N Biren Singh tweeted: “Tallest Indian National Flag in the NE to be hoisted in Moirang.”

“It is matter of great pride that we have successfully installed the tallest flagpole in the NE at Moirang.”

“It was on April 14, 1944 the flag of the INA was hoisted for the first time at Moirang,” he added.

In 1944, Colonel Shaukat Malik of the Indian National Army (INA) hoisted the flag.

Construction works for Indian National Army Museum (INA) War Memorial are also going on at Moirang.

Manipur chief minister N Biren also visited the construction works of the INA War Memorial.

Sharing a video during his visit to the war memorial site, N Biren tweeted: “Inspected the ongoing construction of Indian National Army Museum (INA) War Memorial at Moirang and interacted with the people who are residing around the site of the War Memorial during my visit.”
