He said that the freedom struggle history of the country will not be a complete one without including the contributions of the unsung heroes of the freedom struggle. Keeping this in mind, the Central government is working on a composite history of freedom struggle, not a dynasty-based history and the Centre plans to include names of at least 100 freedom fighters from the northeast region of the country.

MSPDCL chairman T Robindro Singh as guest of honour of the inaugural function, thanked the Union ministry of information & broadcasting for organizing the exhibition.
