Kolkata: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Wednesday, to declare national holiday on the birth anniversary of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose and “take decisive steps to find out what happened to Netaji and place the matter in public domain.”

Banerjee demanded Modi to declare a holiday in all schools, educational institutions and government offices on the date of Netaji’s birth anniversary.

She also pointed out that next year would mark the 125th birth anniversary celebrations of the freedom fighter.

“I would like to request for your kind personal intervention to see that the Central Government declares 23rd January, NetajI’s birthday, a National Holiday, and also takes appropriate steps to give conclusive position to the issue relating to the disappearance of Netaji and unravel the truth by giving the people of the country and abroad the much-awaited opportunity to know what happened to their great leader – their inspiration and their passion,” she concluded, as quoted by The Times of India.

Though the third degree burn from aircrash was cited as the cause of his death in 1945, it was widely believed that Netaji did not die in that plane crash.
