As a move to heat up the process of declassifying the Netaji’s files, the family of the nationalist leader will hold a rally in Kolkata. The kin of the freedom fighter, Subhas Chandra Bose, will lead a protest rally to Indian National Army (INA) Bhavan in Kolkata.
“Our request is to speed up the process, its already been 60-70 years,” Ardhendu Bose, nephew of Netaji, said.
Netaji’s grand nephew Surya Kumar Bose had met Modi when Prime Minister who was in Berlin on his three nation tour. Surya Kumar has raised the issue and sought the declassification of the secret files related to the freedom fighter.
Speaking about the meeting, Chandra Kumar Bose, brother of Surya Kumar Bose, said, “I got a feedback from my elder brother Surya Bose, who happened to meet the PM at Berlin. Mr Modi was very positive, he was very pragmatic in his approach. He said he hasn’t personally seen the files so he would see that the files are scrutinised and the truth should come out.”
“Mr. Narendra Modi has assured Surya Bose and the Bose family and the people of India that he would see to it that proper scrutiny is done and declassification of Subhash Chandra Bose files would be taken up by his government,” he added.
