The minister also made a request to the Chaotal Student Union and Chaotal Sahitya Sabha to prepare a book on Hul revolution so that people of our state come to know about this as no book on this available in Assamese.

The 168th Hul Day not only memorialises the heroes of the Hul rebellion but also symbolises our collective reverence for the countless individuals who fought against British rule, the minister reiterated.

It is worth mentioning that the revolution was took place in the year 1855 on June 30. In this revolution almost 50 thousand Chaotali people took part and fought with their traditional weapons against British.
