The annual event for honouring freedom fighters was celebrated as the Prajamandal Diwas here on September 6. It was organised by the NTPC Kaniha in association with the Talcher Swadinanata Sangrami Memorial Trust 

The Prajamandal movement had started for improving civil rights and which became part of the Indian independence movement from 1920s in which people living in the princely States, who were subject to the rule of local aristocrats rather than the British Raj, campaigned against those feudatory rulers, and sometimes also the British administration.

The programme was graced by Minister for Tourism, Odia Language, Literature and Culture Jyoti Prakash Panigrahi and Dhenkanal MP Mahesh Sahoo.

Besides, Jatai MLA Suresh Routray, Talcher MLA Braja Pradhan, Pallahara MLA Mukesh Pal, freedom fighter Bichannda Pradhan, Angul Collector Manoj Mohanty, NTPC Kaniha ED Ramesh Babu V and GM V Ringe joined as guests.

The dignitaries felicitated Bichannda Pradhan, who was part of the Prajamandal movement. In all, 50 freedom fighters were honoured.
