SILCHAR, July 14 - Chandra Kumar Bose, grandson of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, has said that the Bose family and the people of India have faith on Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the declassification of the �top secret� files which are lying with the Government and hope that some action will be initiated soon.
Bose was here on a three-day tour to garner support towards the �Mission Netaji� movement to put pressure on the Government to make the files public. Flaying the two commissions � Shah Nawaz Commission and GD Khosla Commission, Bose said, �Both the commissions were bogus commissions dictated by the then Congress Government.�
In his words, Justice MK Mukherjee Commission, constituted by the erstwhile NDA Government, made an impartial probe into the incident, but the report was turned down by Shivraj Patil, the Union Home Minister under the UPA Government. He alleged that the Congress Governments in the past have twisted the evidences related to Netaji. �For Jawaharlal Nehru, the main hurdle was Subhash Chandra Bose. If the Government claims that Netaji was killed in the plane crash, what stopped the files to be made public so far,� he questioned.
�For the past 70 years since August 18, 1945, the Governments in power kept hiding the files on Netaji and the Azad Hind Fauz with the excuse of maintaining harmonious international relations. The people of India and Southeast Asia want to know the truth behind the missing mystery of the liberator of India,� Bose said, adding that there must have been an international conspiracy behind the concealment of the facts.
The tilting of the Bose family towards the BJP can be traced from the meeting between Prime Minister Narendra Modi with another Bose scion Surja Bose in Germany after the �spying� episode and reports of 130 secret files with the Government and 64 files lying with the Government of West Bengal got exposed.
Talking about the movement they have started, Bose said that a strong public demand can only make the Central Government bound to take steps in favour of the truth which the past Governments always ignored. �The movement was stared in December 2012 where only 20 people attended the meeting and now thousands of people extend their support and in the near future lakhs of voices will give support. We shall meet on the premises of the Jantar Mantar in New Delhi on August 18 to raise our demands for declassification of the files,� he maintained.
Journalist-turned-author Anuj Dhar, who wrote many books on Netaji, said that the Central Government has no right to keep the the mystery of Netaji�s death secret and the files related to the matter should be declassified.
It may be mentioned that as a part of the �Mission Netaji� campaign, both Chandra Kumar Bose and Anuj Dhar interacted with the students of Radha Madhav College here. They also took part in a rally and a public meeting at the Banga Bhawan organised by NGO Ujjalapan and patronised by local MLA Dilip Paul, to raise public demand from various corners of the country before the Central Government to solve the missing mystery of Bose.
