On this day, the tribal brothers and sisters not only protected the country’s pride with solidarity, but also inspired the countrymen, he added.
Modi said, “The courage and might with which the Hool rebellion was led by heroes including Siddho-Kanhu, Chand-Bhairava and Phulo-Jhano created panic in the British Empire,” he said.
Thousands of tribals lost their lives in this rebellion, but they did not succumb to injustice, he said.
It is believed that the rebellion started on June 30, 1855.
