Imphal: While as Manipur joins the rest of India, the national tricolor flag was hoisted at the Border Pillar No. 92 Indo-Myanmar border as a part of the Har Ghar Tiranga campaign marking the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav and the 75 years of India’s Independence.
Located in one of the innermost corners of the state, the said pillar comes under Ashang Khullen village of Kasom Khullen sub-division of Kamjong district.

Talking about this special effort to reach the HGT campaign to the remotest part of the state, Duna said, “This is one of the eastern most point of our country and I feel it’s befitting to fly our National Flag at this corner of the vast country to pay respect and tribute to all those freedom fighters who laid their lives to our country and for us.”
