Ranchi: On the birth anniversary of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose on Saturday, Defence Minister Manohar Parrikar will unfurl the largest national flag in the country at Pahari Mandir in Jharkhand.

The height of the tricolour is 98 ft X 66 ft.

Pahari Mandir, once known as Phansi Tongri, was one of the place where Britishers used to hang the freedom fighters.

Meanwhile, Prime Minister Narendra Modi will today release digital copies of 100 files related to Netaji following the government's decision to declassify files on the freedom fighter.

The files, digitised and given "preliminary conservation treatment" by the National Archives of India, will be released on the birth anniversary of Netaji.
