160th anniversary of the Battle of Phulaguri Dhewa
Assam’s Chief Minister pays respect to the martyrs of Phulaguri Dhewa. On the 160th anniversary of the first peasant rebellion in Assam against the British Raj, Assam Chief Minister Himanta Biswa Sarma paid respect to the martyrs of Phulaguri Dhewa.
“Today marks the 160th anniversary of the first peasant rebellion in Assam against the British Raj,” CM Sarma wrote on Twitter. I pay my humble respects to the martyrs of Phulaguri Dhewa who gave their lives in defense of the nation.”
For Assam peasants, October 18, 1961, is a day of inspiration since it symbolizes the beginning of the state’s first organized peasant movement.
The Phulaguri insurrection, also known as the Phulaguri Dhewa, upset the British rule in Assam for the first time. To regain control of the situation, 39 peasants killed and hanged many of the leaders. Assam’s first peasant uprising sparked a wave of subsequent peasant uprisings against British rule
