On the occasion of Shaheed Diwas, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will inaugurate Biplobi Bharat Gallery at Kolkata's Victoria Memorial Hall on 23 March at 6 pm via video conferencing, an official release said on Tuesday (22 March).

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will also address the gathering during the event.

The Gallery displays the contribution of the revolutionaries in the freedom struggle and their armed resistance against British colonial rule. This aspect has often not been given its due place in the mainstream narrative of the freedom movement, a PMO release said.

The purpose of this new gallery is to provide a holistic view of the events that led up to 1947 and highlight the important role played by the revolutionaries, it added.

Biplobi Bharat Gallery depicts the political and intellectual backdrop that triggered the revolutionary movement. It showcases the birth of the revolutionary movement, formation of significant associations by revolutionary leaders, spread of the movement, formation of Indian National Army, contribution of Naval Mutiny, among others, the PMO said.
