All India Forward Bloc Established by Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose

The AIFB (All India Forward Bloc) is an Indian left-wing nationalist political party. It was founded in 1939 on this day as a faction of the Indian National Congress, led by Subhas Chandra Bose. Following India's independence, the party was re-established as an independent political party. Its main base of operations is in West Bengal.

In independent India, veteran Indian politicians Sarat Chandra Bose (brother of Subhas Chandra Bose) and Chitta Basu were the party's stalwarts.

 

Goa Revolution Day 

Every year on this day, Goa Revolution Day commemorates one of the state's most pivotal moments in history. The people of the region began a great revolution on this day in 1946 to reclaim their homeland from the Portuguese, which ended in the territory's independence on December 19, 1961.
