PM Modi pays tribute to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose on his birth anniversary

New Delhi/IBNS: Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid his tribute to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose on his birth anniversary on Thursday.

In a tweet, Modi said, "India will always remain grateful to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose for his bravery and indelible contribution to resisting colonialism. He stood up for the progress and well-being of his fellow Indians."

Born in a Bengali Hindu, Kayastha family in Odisha, Netaji was one of the most prominent Indian nationalist leaders who attempted to gain India's independence from British rule by force during the waning years of World War II with the help of the Axis powers.

Bose, who had been ousted from the Indian National Congress in 1939 following differences with the more conservative high command, and subsequently placed under house arrest by the British, escaped from India in early 1941.

He turned to the Axis powers for help in gaining India's independence by force. With Japanese support, he organised the Indian National Army, composed largely of Indian soldiers of the British Indian Army who had been captured in the Battle of Singapore by the Japanese.

His attempt was however short lived and it's still an unacceptable issue for the Indians especially among the Bengali community, that no specific inquiry was made into Bose's mysterious disappearance or possible death.
