The Manipur Chief Minister N. Biren Singh on Wednesday inspected the Indian National Army (INA) Headquarters, situated at Moirang Konjengbam Leikai, which is being developed into a historical tourist site.

A world-class tourist destination, the initiative has been undertaken by the state government at a cost of Rs. 35 crore.

Developed on the land measuring 2443 sq. ft. by Manipur Police Housing Corporation Ltd as the implementing agency, this complex is being designed by Huidrom Design Studio, Khurai Salanthong.

It was at this site that the Indian tricolour was hoisted by the bravehearts of INA for the first time on Indian soil during World War-II, which took place on 1944.

However, the old building which was used by the INA as its office still exists at the complex.

It’s worthy to note that the land was safeguarded by some private owners of the locality since 1944, which was later handed over to the government on the condition that they are provided land compensation.

In the site, a giant Indian National flag will be hoisted on a 165 feet tall mast.

While addressing the mediapersons, the Chief Minister lauded the land owners for protecting this site for decades.

He further added that the existing INA Memorial site would also be upgraded and renovated soon.
