Kolkata: Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose's kin on Monday said their appointment with Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been fixed on October 14 in Delhi.

"We just got a mail from the Prime Minister's Office, saying that a meeting has been confirmed for October 14 at 5 pm at his residence on the 7, Race Course Road," Netaji's grand nephew, Chandra Bose told PTI.

He said that a delegation of Netaji family members and associates would be going there to demand declassification of all Netaji files held by the central government.

"Family members spread all over the country and overseas would attend the meeting. Besides, there would be researchers on Netaji like Anuj Dhar," Bose said.

"Retired Supreme Court Justice Ashok Ganguly, who has also supported our cause, would also attend," Bose said, adding, their delegation would have around 50 people.

In his last address on 'Mann ki Baat' radio programme, Modi had mentioned that he was soon going to host the Netaji family in Delhi.

The focus of the meeting would be on declassification of Netaji files so that the mystery surrounding the freedom fighter's disappearance in 1945 could be solved, Bose said.

The West Bengal government had also recently released 64 secret Netaji files.
