Howrah, Sept. 11 (ANI): West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday announced that her government would be declassifying 64 files related to Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose.
“All 64 files concerning Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose will be put in public domain next Friday (September 18),” Banerjee told reporters here.
Acknowledging that there was a long-standing demand for the declassification of the files on Bose, Banerjee said there might be one or two more files in the possession of the government.
“Recently we requested the Centre to put all the files relating to Subhash Chandra Bose in the public domain but it has yet not come in the public domain,” she added.
Subsequent to this, family members of Netaji also urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi to declassify all the files relating him.
“I would appeal to Prime Minister Modi that he must immediately release 130 files which are with Central Government,” Chandra Bose, Netaji’s grand nephew, told ANI.
Bose further appealed to Prime Minister Modi to write to the foreign authorities to de-classify all the files that they have with them.
Earlier, family members of Netaji met the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh (RSS) leaders and demanded their intervention to declassify the files on his disappearance. (ANI)
