Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Monday inaugurated a museum in Ranchi in memory of revered tribal freedom fighter Birsa Munda, popularly known as Dharti Aaba. Addressing a gathering virtually, the prime minister said Dharti Aaba did not live very long but he wrote a complete history for the country and gave direction to the future generations of India.

Paying tributes, Modi said he fought against the ideology that wanted to erase the identity of the tribal society of India.

"Bhagwan Birsa knew that attacking diversity in the name of modernity, tampering with ancient identity and nature was not the way for the welfare of the society. He was in favour of modern education, he advocated for change, he showed courage to speak against the shortcomings of his own society," the prime minister said.

Congratulating citizens of the state and the tribal society, Modi dedicated the Birsa Munda Memorial Udyan and Museum to the nation.

Chief Minister Hemant Soren, Union Minister Arjun Munda and former chief minister Babulal Marandi were among those present on the occasion, held on the Jharkhand Statehood Day.

The museum is situated at the Old Central Jail in Ranchi where the tribal icon had breathed his last. A 25-feet tall statue of Munda has been installed.

The project has been developed in association with the Jharkhand government, the Prime Minister's Office said.

It demonstrates the way tribal people struggled to protect their forests, land rights, their culture and show their valour and sacrifices, which is vital for nation-building, the PMO said.

Along with Munda, the museum will also highlight tribal freedom fighters such as Budhu Bhagat, Sidhu-Kanhu, Nilambar-Pitambar, Diwa-Kisun, Telanga Khadiya, Gaya Munda, Jatra Bhagat, Poto H, Bhagirath Manjhi and Ganga Narayan Singh. The memorial park has been developed on adjacent 25 acres of land, and it has a musical fountain, food court, children's park, infinity pool, garden and other entertainment facilities.

The Ministry of Tribal Affairs has so far sanctioned the construction of 10 tribal freedom fighter museums.

Earlier in the day, Modi greeted the nation on the birth anniversary of Birsa Munda. He tweeted:

He also greeted the residents of Jharkhand, which was formed on Munda's birth anniversary, in 2000. Later in the day, he paid floral tributes at the statue of Munda in Parliament complex on his birth anniversary.

The government has announced that Munda's birth anniversary will be celebrated as Janjatiya Gaurav Divas.

After paying tributes at the statue of the tribal leader, Modi left for Bhopal in Madhya Pradesh to participate in the 'Janjatiya Gaurav Diwas Mahasammelan' and launch multiple initiatives for the tribal community.
