Kolkata: Ruing that there hasn't been a proper evaluation of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose's "immense contribution", Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee Tuesday said the Centre should follow the state government's decision on declassification of files related to the freedom fighter.

"We have declassified 64 Netaji files. The immense contributions of Netaji has not been evaluated properly. We feel that the Centre should follow us and declassify the files," Banerjee said in the state Assembly.

She said the state would also digitise files of Cabinet decisions taken between 1937-47.
