On August 8, 2020, Mahatma Gandhi launched the Quit India Movement, also known as ‘August Movement’ or ‘Bharat Chodo Andolan’ at the Bombay session of the All India Congress Committee (AICC).

Initiated to demand an end to the British rule in the nation, the Quit India Movement has been considered as one of the most significant events in the history of India’s freedom struggle.

A civil disobedience movement, the protest was followed to grant independence from the hands of Britishers.

During the period, several young patriots from Assam laid their lives for the nation while leading the procession bearing the National Flag.

The Movement also took place at Kamrup, Nagaon, Darrang, Sivasagar, Golaghat, and Barpeta of Assam.

Meanwhile, several women freedom fighters from the state, members of ‘Mrityu-Bahini’ or ‘Santi-Sena’ are considered as the backbone of the movement.
