Netaji’s Grand-Nephew Joins BJP


New Delhi : Chandra Kumar Bose, grand-nephew of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, on Monday joined BJP, just two days after 100 secret files which could throw some light on the mystery over the INA chief’s death were made public by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on his 119th birth anniversary.

Netaji’s Grand-Nephew Joins BJP SAMAYABose joined the BJP in poll-bound West Bengal in the presence of party president Amit Shah at a public rally addressed by the latter in Howrah where he targeted Mamata Banerjee government, alleging only chit fund industry is flourishing in the state and that it was turning into a safe haven for anti-national elements and fake currency racket.

He had attended the ceremony in Delhi where 100 files on Netaji were declassified by the NDA government on January 23 and had said, “We welcome this step by the Prime Minister wholeheartedly.

This is a day of transparency in India.” Asked by reporters whether the BJP is looking to him to play a winning card in the upcoming elections in the state, Bose said it is not a question of winning card or losing card, asserting his job is to bring back “inclusivity” in Indian scenario.

“Netaji’s ideal wish was that India should be inclusive where there is unity among all religions. It must be brought back now,” Bose said.
