 BIRSA MUNDA

 

BIRSA MUNDA

Birsa Munda occupies a distinguished position as a peerless protagonist of tribal rights, a great patriot and a martyr in the long succession of heroes of the Chota Nagpur plateau.  A constructive genius, he made the Munda people unite for their political emancipation and infused in them the spirit of nationalism.  His followers formed themselves into a sect, worshipping him as a symbol of the aspirations of the people.

The portrait was unveiled by the then Speaker of the Lok Sabha, Dr. Bal Ram jakhar on 16 October 1989.

The portrait was donated by the Birsa Munda Statue Committee, Rourkela.
