Subhas Chandra Bose's kin demands apology from Sonia, Rahul for Nehru's mistakes
Ever since Mamata Banerjee-led West Bengal government declassified files on Subhas Chandra Bose, various theories have been emerging on Netaji's death mystery.
Kolkata: Ever since Mamata Banerjee-led West Bengal government declassified files on Subhas Chandra Bose, various theories have been emerging on Netaji's death mystery.
Netaji's grand-nephew Chandra Kumar Bose, in an interview to 'Dainik Bhaskar', maintained that the files, which were put on public domain by the West Bengal government last week, clearly indicate that Bose family was spied on by the then Nehru government after the great freedom fighter reportedly died in 1945 in a plane crash in Taiwan.
Chandra also emphasised that the files reveal that great freedom fighter did not die in the crash that took place on August 18, 1945 in Formosa (now Taiwan).
Bose's kin also pushed for the declassification of 150-160 files by the central government.
He further accused the then Congress government of snooping upon his father Amiya Nath Bose when he went to Japan in 1957 to collect some information on Netaji.
Bose's kin demanded an apology from Congress leaders Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi for Jawaharlal Nehru's mistakes. He said, if both the leaders fail to do so, then it is clear that it was a conspiracy and both are supporting it.
He dismissed the reports of Bose marrying a Czech lady with whom he had a daughter named "Nima".
West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee has said that some letters in the declassified files indicate that Netaji was alive even after 1945.
The Trinamool Congress chief's comments came after 64 secret files related to Netaji that could help throw light on his mysterious disappearance--an enduring enigma for seven decades --were released by her government.
The West Bengal CM also said that the documents support the theory that Bose family was snooped upon.
"There are intercepts. I have seen the documents and it is clear from them that the family of Netaji was spied upon," Banerjee told the media.
