Mamata Banerjee Questions Centre On Netaji Files

New Delhi: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee questioned the Narendra Modi government at the Centre as to why it is yet to declassify the files related to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s death.

Banerjee’s party, the Trinamool Congress, sought that the ashes preserved at Japan’s Renkoji temple, believed to be that of the iconic freedom fighter, be sent for DNA analysis.

“Till today we don’t know about Netaji’s whereabouts,” Banerjee was quoted as saying in an event to mark his 125th birth anniversary by news agency ANI.

“They (the Centre) had said that when they come to power, they will work on it but nothing happened. In fact, we (state) have released and declassified all files on Netaji Bose,” said.

In Bengal, the controversy over Netaji’s death is a hugely emotive issue and several people still believe that he did not die in a plane crash in 1945.

The Centre had earlier confirmed that Subhas Chandra Bose died in a plane crash in Taipei on August 18, 1945, while responding to a query under the Right to Information Act in 2017.

It may be recalled that Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced a couple of days ago that the Centre will build a statue of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose at the India Gate here.
