It stated that the event featured the hoisting of the party flag, floral tributes to the revolutionary cadres who gave their lives for the cause of national liberation movement, and reading out of the message by the Chairman of the outfit.
It stated that most of the leaders there highlighted the necessity to live as a “subject” rather than existing as a “object” with no freedom of choice, similar to the chairman who spoke about the need for an authentic existence to safeguard one’s identity.
The outfit stated that many leaders have emphasized the chairman’s argument that explains the connection between economic marginalization and a nation’s demise. Important members of the organisation explored how a society with a strong sense of identity may heighten its collective consciousness after perusing the chairman’s statement, it added.
It also stated that all of the organisation’s members were reminded by the Chairman of the need of continuing to oppose Indian colonialism since it is the only means by which they can continue to exist as a people.
Thus, the primary themes of KYKL’s 29th Raising Day were keeping the embers of resistance burning, persevering with the national liberation movement and protecting national identity, it added.
