Netaji did not get due honours: Mamata

Amidst the demand for declassification of secret files relating to the disappearance of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday rued that he did not got the honours he deserved from “powers that be”.

“The final days of Netaji is still a mystery. What happened to him, no one knows. History is incomplete. Netaji has not got the honour he deserved from the powers that be,” Banerjee said at a government programme to observe his 118th birth anniversary here.

Along with some activists, several of Netaji’s family members have been demanding release of secret files from government records which they said can solve the mystery of his disappearance in 1945.

In a recent RTI reply, the PMO said there were 41 files related to Netaji, of which two had been declassified, but the remaining ones would not made so as the “disclosure would prejudicially affect relation with foreign countries”.

“Netaji is one of the most inspirational persons in Indian history. I am ready to sacrifice my life for preserving the unity of this country,” Banerjee said.
