Kolkata: RSS chief Mohan Bhagwat on Friday asked the Centre to take steps to help reveal the truth about the mysterious disappearance of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.

"There are so many question marks over the mysterious disappearance of Netaji. Truth should come out," Bhagwat said replying to a question at a press conference here during his maiden visit to the state after assuming this post.

On the Centre not taking the Netaji Commission's report seriously, Bhagwat said he was confident that there was still some scope for further action to reveal the truth.

Patriots like Netaji neglected: Mamata

Regretting that patriots like Subhas Chandra Bose had remained neglected in Indian political history, Trinamool Congress Chief Mamata Banerjee today demanded that mysterious disappearance of Netaji be immediately resolved.

"Three commissions of inquiry have failed to solve the mysterious disappearance of Netaji, but this should be resolved as early as possible," Banerjee, who is Railway Minister, said after unveiling the bust of the patriot on the eve of his birthday, at Alipore court complex.

Banerjee said it was regrettable that Netaji had remained neglected in Indian politics. "True patriots should get their due honour," she said.

The Trinamool leader said that Netaji's life and work should find place in the curricula of school text books.

The function was organised by Alipore court bar association.
