Panaji, June 17, 2017 …On the eve of Goa Revolution Day the Chief Minister Shri. Manohar Parrikar has paid his sincere homage to the Martyrs, because of whom it was possible for us to live in dignity and be masters of our destiny.
In his message, Shri. Parrikar said, ” The freedom struggle of Goa entered its last and final phase when Dr. Ram Manohar Lohia gave a clarion call to people of the state to unite and fight against the colonial rule on June 18, 1946 from Margao.”
The historic day is celebrated as `Goa Kranti Din` to recollect the saga of the struggle of the people of Goa for freedom. The importance of the day could be judged from the fact that the uprising not only shook the foundation of the alien rule, but eventually it led to the liberation of Goa on December 19, 1961, Chief Minister said.
