Addressing a state-level function to commemorate theGoa Revolution Day Tuesday, Chief Minister Pramod Sawant said the government would display portraits of Ram Manohar Lohiya, Purushottam Kakodkar, Vishwanath Lawande, T B Cunha and Babani Naik Desai at the secretariat so that future generations will remember them.
The Goa Revolution, which is being commemorated annually on June 18, has special significance for Goans as it was on this day in the year 1946 that the Goans staged an open but peaceful revolt against the atrocities perpetrated on them by the Portuguese colonial regime.
"We want out future generations to know about the liberation movement and those who participated in it," Sawant said.
He said the government was working on a project to curate a gallery, specially to highlight Goa's liberation struggle.
"The gallery would be set up on the government premises. A film based on liberation of Goa will be showed in the gallery for visitors," the CM said.
Goa was liberated from the 450-year-ong rule of the Portuguese in 1961.
