Earlier talking to ANI grandson of Netaji, Chandra Bose had said, "We are acting as the ambassador for the people of India and we believe that Subhash Chandra Bose belongs to the entire nation."
"Netaji was probably one of the first nationalists of India. Prime Minister Modi claims to be a nationalist and keeping that in mind, I feel he will ensure the truth about Netaji's disappearance would be settled once and for all. We are hopeful along with the whole nation, that a positive result will come out of this meet," he had added.
Meanwhile, the Trinamool Congress also said earlier in the day that the entire nation deserved to know the truth about Netaji's disappearance.
"The Mamata Banerjee government took a historic decision to declassify Netaji's files. This is a great example of transparency and we believe that the Centre should do the same because Netaji deserves it and everybody in the nation deserves to know the truth," Trinamool Congress spokesperson Derek O Brien had said.
