Kolkata: Amid demands of declassifying files on freedom fighter Subhas Chandra Bose, Prime Minister Narendra Modi met latter’s kin in Kolkata.
Grand nephew of Subhas Chandra Bose, Chandra Kumar Bose, said that Modi assured him of full government support. Chandra Kumar Bose added that Modi clearly told him that if it is people’s demand then it is the responsibility of the federal government to resolve the issue.
The Intelligence Bureau (IB) files have revealed an unprecedented surveillance on Bose’s family between 1948 and 1968, which was reported directly to Jawaharlal Nehru.
The agency intercepted, copied letters written by Bose’s family and tailed their visits within the country and abroad. Bose, 48, was believed to have died in an air crash in Taiwan on August 18, 1945, three days after Japan’s surrender to the allied forces.
But his death is shrouded in mystery, with many historians arguing that he faked the accident to avoid arrest. Last month, Modi had met another grand nephew of Subhas Chandra Bose in Berlin with regard to the same issue.
