IT News
Imphal, Aug 28,

Common body of major rebel groups of the region CorCom pays revolutionary salute  Haipou Jadonang on his 88th Death Anniversary to be observed on August 29.
Haipou Jadonang is a leader who fought against the British Empire for the freedom of the nation, the statement issued by media coordinator, M. Sak-hen said. It stated that the war for self determination waged by leader, Jadonang against the colonial rule has become greatly relevant today. The supreme sacrifice he gave on August 29, 1931 for his motherland has now become an event of extreme importance to the present and upcoming generations of today, it said.
After Kangliepak (Manipur) was colonised by the British Empire in 1891 at the dawn of 20th century, Haipou Jadonang was born in 1905 at Kambiron village in Tamenglong as a child of ‘Thiudai’ and ‘Tabonliu.’
Since his childhood, he has been a brave individual who had love and affection for his motherland, it said. At that time, Jadonang resolved to fight against the system introduced by British for making the villagers used as labour by the state officials during their trip and taxation imposed against them, it further said.
His rebellion against the British ignited the movement for self determination amongst the people to fight for independence from the colonial rule. Also, he believed that by preserving the indigenous culture and tradition of the people, it could be the key to expose the hidden agenda of the colonial government, and protect the people as well, it said.
His movement for self determination constantly disrupted the plans and efforts of the British colonisers. This made the British officials to scheme for a plan to eliminate him forever.
In February 19, 1928, Jadonang was arrested from Binakandi, Cachar.  The political agent of that time J.C. Higgins too the role of both the prosecutor and judge, and charged IPC Section 302/109 and 320/149 to Jadonang and the trial was undertaken against him, it said.
In such a haste manner, Jadonang, who was merely 26 at that time, was hanged near the bank of Nambul River on the backside of Imphal Central Jail on August 29, 1931, it added.  
Had Jadonang was kept alive, he would have lived as a true leader and the movement for self determination would have directed towards a different chapter in history for Zeliangrong Community and Manipur in general, it said. However, the movement against colonial rule ignited by Jadonang still continues today by the present generation, it stated.
On the 88th Death Anniversary of Haipou Jadonang, the people of Zeliangrong community and Manipur not only should pay their respects to him but it will truly become meaningful if both the people of the hills and the valley can become united and give efforts towards waging a stronger battle for the war of self determination, it added..
