How did Netaji die? Rajya Sabha demands BJP declassify files on Bose
New Delhi: A demand to declassify records relating to Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose was made in the Rajya Sabha today to "unravel the mystery" behind his death nearly seven decades back.
Raising the issue during Zero Hour, Sukhendu Sekhar Roy (TMC) said that the BJP before coming to power had demanded that records related to Bose be made public but has refused to declassify the files, after forming the government.
"The nation has the right to know what happened to Netaji," he said, demanding that 39 files be declassified and put up in the National Archives.
Several Left and Congress members also associated themselves with the issue.
