Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose 100 Secret Files:
Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Saturday made public digital copies of 100 secret files relating to Subhas Chandra Bose on his 119th birth anniversary.
In October 2015, the Prime Minister had met the family members of Netaji and announced that the government would declassify the files relating to the leader whose disappearance 70 years ago remains a mystery.
While two commissions of inquiry had concluded that Netaji had died in a plane crash in Taipei on 18 August, 1945, a third probe panel, headed by Justice M K Mukherjee, had contested it and suggested that Bose was alive after that. The controversy had also split members of the Bose family too.
The first lot of 33 files were declassified by the Prime Minister s Office (PMO) and handed over to the NAI on 4 December, last year.
Subsequently, the Ministries of Home Affairs and External Affairs too initiated the process of declassification of files relating to Bose in their respective collection which were then transferred over to the NAI, it added.
In his reaction to the declassification, Chandra Kumar Bose, spokesperson of the Bose family and grand-nephew of Subhash Chandra Bose who was present at the ceremony, said “we welcome this step by Prime Minister wholeheartedly. This is a day of transparency in India.”
Earlier in day, he told PTI, “We feel that certain very important files were destroyed during the Congress regime in order to hide the truth. We have documentary evidence to understand this. So we feel that the Indian government should take steps to ensure the release of files lying in Russia, Germany, UK, USA.”
Chandra Bose also said, “We couldn’t go through all the files as of now. But as of now, what we could go through, there are only circumstantial evidence of the air-crash but no conclusive evidence of the air crash.”
“Even in one of the letters that we saw here which was written by Lal Bahadur Shastri to Suresh Bose that there is no conclusive evidence about the air crash, only few circumstantial evidence,” he said after the files were declassified.
Chandra Bose said “there is a change in the attitude of the government from that of the previous ones. Firstly, the attitude of suppressing the facts about Netaji has been negated. And this is the biggest thing in unraveling the truth about Netaji,” Bose said.
An official said the National Archives placed 100 files relating to Bose in public domain “after preliminary conservation treatment and digitization”. The NAI also plans to release digital copies of 25 declassified files on Bose in the public domain every month.
The digital copies of these files coming out in public domain meets a “long-standing public demand” which would facilitate scholars to carry out further research on Bose, the official said.
