According to Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma on Thursday, the Assam government has decided to send 1,000 young people from the state to visit the Cellular Jail in the Andaman and Nicobar Islands as part of the Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav. According to Sarma’s tweet, the young people will be given a purpose to “imbibe the spirit of nationalism by deriving inspiration from the sacrifices of our great independence fighters.”
He added that numerous freedom fighters were imprisoned at the Port Blair Cellular Jail for rebelling against the British Raj, which gave the jail an important place in India’s independence movement. However, the chief minister did not state a specific date for the teenagers’ trip.

The British government built the three-story prison in 1906 and stood silently by as the freedom fighters were tortured. It presently serves as a memorial. Sarma also paid tribute to the 74 Assamese members of the CRPF who “had sacrificed their lives in various states of the nation since Independence.” “We pledge to dedicate every day of our lives to creating a more prosperous India in honour of their tremendous sacrifice because we are so deeply moved by it.” “I salute these courageous souls,” he tweeted.
