Kolkata: Grand nephew of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, Chandra Kumar Bose, joined the Bhartiya Janata Party (BJP) on Monday.
Chandra Bose took membership of the BJP at a rally attended by BJP president Amit Shah in Kolkata today.
“Joining a political party is a personal matter but I feel your principle and ideology matter. The BJP believes in the ideology of Subhas Chandra Bose,” he said.
Lately, Chandra Bose has been heaping praise on Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the NDA government.
On January 23 when Modi government declassified 100 files related to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, he had said, “The country is waiting to see how the NDA Government will transform a government of suppression and deceit" to a government of transparency and openness."
“You see what I like about Mr Narendra Modi's attitude, was, he said that we must do this jointly. I have not seen the files personally, but it is a national demand, people are raising it. I clearly told him that this is not a family issue at all. Some members of the family might have initiated the move but I think the people of India would demand, to know, what happened to Subhash Bose after 18th August 1945, they would like to know," Chandra Kumar Bose had said.
