Public holiday declared on Netaji birthday in Jharkhand

Ranchi, Jan 22 (IANS) The Jharkhand government has declared January 23 as a public holiday on the occasion of the birth anniversary of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. The notification to this effect was issued following order of Chief Minister Hemant Soren.
