Truth about Netaji’s last days must come out: WB CM
While attending a special programme organised by the Netaji Research Bureau to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s “Great Escape” (Maha Nishkraman), West Bengal Chief Minister reiterated her demand that the truth about last days of Netaji must come out.
The Netaji Mystery
Calling Netaji “Leader of the Nation”, WB CM said it is a matter of national shame that we know the date of birth of Netaji but not the date of his death. She wondered if Netaji died in 1945 why did snooping on Bose family continue after independence. She also said some light must be shed on whether he visited Russia after his disappearance.
WB CM also iterated the demand of DNA test on the ashes at Renkoji temple. She said Netaji was a popular figure globally and the next generation must know the full truth about him.
The Great Escape
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today inaugurated an exhibition to mark 75 years of Netaji’s ‘Great Escape’ at Netaji Bhavan, the residence from where in 1941 he had escaped house confinement.
She also unveiled a marble plaque in front of the entrance of Netaji Bhavan to commemorate the route Netaji’s nephew Sisir Bose had taken to drive him out.
