PM to inaugurate Biplobi Bharat Gallery

New Delhi, March 22 : Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate the Biplobi Bharat Gallery at Victoria Memorial Hall in Kolkata on March 23 via video conferencing on the occasion of ‘Shaheed Diwas’, the Prime Minister’s Office (PMO) said on Tuesday. He will also address the gathering, the PMO said. “The gallery displays the contribution of the revolutionaries in the freedom struggle and their armed resistance to British colonial rule. This aspect has often not been given its due place in the mainstream narrative of the freedom movement,” it said. “The purpose of this new gallery is to provide a holistic view of the events that led up to 1947 and highlight the important role played by the revolutionaries,” it said. The Biplobi Bharat Gallery depicts the political and intellectual backdrop that triggered the revolutionary movement including the formation of the Indian National Army and the contribution of the Naval Mutiny in India’s independence struggle.
