Athoubasinggi Ningsing Numit: KYKL observes 28th Martyrs’ Day
'We observed the day this year with a tribute to the Kanglei revolutionaries'.
Kanglei Yawol Kanna Lup (KYKL) on Wednesday organised its 28th 'Athoubasinggi Ningsing Numit' (Martyrs' Day) which is annually observed on August 18.
“We observed the day this year with a tribute to the Kanglei revolutionaries who sacrificed themselves to dismantle Indian colonialism and establish an independent socialist society for the Kanglei people,” stated a release issued by secretary, publicity and research KYKL A Yaiphaba.
The function was observed in its 1st, 2nd, and 3rd battalions, units, transit camps as well as in a number of locations in and outside Kangleipak, it stated. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic now ravaging countries around the world, the event was toned down and held as a low key event this time, it added.
