From declassification of Netaji files to Subhas Utsab – Bangla Govt keeping the legacy of Netaji alive
On September 18, 2015, Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had released all the 64 classified files related to Netaji, which were in the possession of the Kolkata Police and the West Bengal Police. The files are being kept at the Kolkata Police Museum on APC Road.
Not only that, Mamata Banerjee has been exhorting the Centre and many foreign countries as well to release all secret files related to Netaji.
The CM had also announced the State Government’s decision to digitise these files. In the future the government plans to declassify files of the post-independence era too, the chief minister had said.
Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose continues to inspire all of us.
On January 15, 2016, the Chief Minister had inaugurated a plaque, commemorating the 75th anniversary of the ‘Great Escape’, as the great leader’s escape in 1941 from house arrest (in Netaji Bhawan) is called, and a statue of Netaji at Netaji Bhawan.
