New Delhi: Reacting on expected lines, the Congress, Saturday, said the manner in which Modi government has carried out the declassification of files on Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose has raised serious questions on its intent.
Congress spokesperson Anand Sharma said, “This is a deliberately created confusion and conspiracy by political forces and elements who have been ideologically opposed to the leadership of India’s struggle for independence led by the Indian National Congress.”
Terming it as a targeted mischief, Sharma said that the Modi government is trying to belittle the stalwarts of freedom struggle like Jawaharlal Nehru.
Chiding the ruling party, Sharma said, “The BJP and their mother organisation and their affiliate organisations cannot claim any leader who were at the forefront of freedom struggle and made notable contribution.”
“By these cheap conspiracies and spreading canards truth cannot be suppressed. The Congress not only condemns this mischief but is determined to identify and punish those behind it,” he said.
