March 21, 1955: The final success in the achievement of Cambodian independence was due to the "moral support we drew from India," Prince Norodom Sihanouk Varman declared in New Delhi on March 18. The Prince, who was speaking at a reception given to him by the All India Kamboj Mahasabha, said that he could not express in adequate words "our gratitude for this support." He said the Government and the people of Cambodia held in great admiration Prime Minister Nehru for his unstinting efforts to free those Asian and African territories still under colonial rule. Now that Cambodia was free, "we will play our part" in helping to remove the last vestiges of colonialism from the area, he added. He said he was very happy to visit India and renew old contacts.
Nanak Chand Kamboj was a General Secretary of All India Kamboj Mahasabha and invited Prince Norodom Sihanouk Varman to New Delhi.
