Sabilal Upadhaya-Brief Life Sketch

Sabilal Upadhaya (Chabilala Upadhaya) was a Nepali-speaking Gurkha Congress activist, social worker and freedom fighter from Assam. Sabilal Upadhyay was born on 12 May 1882 AD in the village of Budhigang in present-day Bishwanath district to Kashinath Upadhyay. Sabilal Upadhyay’s formal education was limited to the secondary level. But he was educated informally. He later joined the freedom struggle of India in the company of Chandranath Sharma, Ghanshyam Baruah, Lok Nayak Amiya Kumar Das and others. The then British government was preparing to remove the cattle herds of the Gorkhas and Miching people around Kaziranga. Sabilal Upadhyay raised a proposal against the eviction at the meeting of the Assam Association held at Tezpur in 1919 and the proposal was passed. The Assam Association was transformed into the Assam Pradesh Congress Committee at a meeting held on 18 April 1921 in Jorhat under the chairmanship of Sabilal Upadhyay. Sabilal was elected the first president of the Assam Pradesh Congress Committee. The British offered Sabilal Upadhyay such lucrative posts like Maujadar, Councilor, Barlat etc. to keep him away from the Congress. He rejected all those offerings and voluntarily joined the Non-cooperation Movement led by Gandhi and spent six months in jail. Coming out of jail, he assisted in the elimination of foreign goods and first burnt the foreign goods in his house. He also set up a local Swadeshi Vidyalaya. He also played an active role in the 1942 Quit India Movement led by Mahatma Gandhi. 0 0 0
