By The Assam Tribune

NEW DELHI, OCT 21: In a lengthy speech invoking valour and recalling the contribution of the Azad Hind Fauj (Indian National Army) in the freedom movement, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said on Sunday that his government was committed to taking "big and bold" decisions and that the Indian Army was being modernised as per the vision of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.

Modi made the remarks while speaking at the Red Fort, where in a departure from protocol, he hoisted the national flag to mark the commemoration of the 75 years of the establishment of the Azad Hind Sarkar, the government of "free India".

The Azad Hind government was raised by Bose during the freedom movement.

Modi said that "even after 75 years of Independence, Netaji's dreams have not been fulfilled". - IANS
