New Delhi, Jan 23: The Narendra Modi government will declassify some of the secret files relating to great freedom fighter Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose on Saturday.
Congress president Sonia Gandhi pays homage to Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose on his 119th birth anniversary. In a statement issued, Sonia says, the Congress can never forget his contributions to the national struggle for freedom for founding of an independent democratic republic of India.
Commenting on the declassified files, the senior Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader said: "Today is going to be historic day in India's history as PM Shri Modi will begin the process of declassifying documents pertaining to Netaji."
PM Modi will himself put the files in the public domain on the birth anniversary of Netaji. On October 14 last year, the Prime Minister had promised to declassify the files when he met 35 members of Bose's family at his official residence.
The PM will release digital copies of 100 files related to Netaji following the government's decision to declassify files on the freedom fighter.
