New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi will release digital copies of 100 classified files related to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose on his birth anniversary on Saturday, in the presence of around 20 of the latter’s family members.
The PM will first attend a function at Parliament House organised in the memory of the freedom fighter, who is believed to have died in an aircrash two years before Independence, a theory that has constantly been challenged.
After the function, Modi will release copies of the files, which have so far remained “classified” and hence out of public access. Bose’s family members will be present at both the events.BJP is also hoping to gain some political mileage by declassifying the Bose files, especially in the upcoming elections in West Bengal where Netaji remains an emotive issue.
“National Archives of India (NAI) is placing 100 files relating to Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose in public domain after preliminary conservation treatment and digitisation. On the occasion of the birth anniversary of Netaji, the Prime Minister will release the digital copies of these files in public domain,” an official release said on Friday.
The initiative will meet the long-standing public demand for access to these files, besides facilitating scholars to carry out further research on Bose, it said.
