India on Tuesday asked Russia to share information on Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose and shed light on the case which has dragged on for decades without any answers.
External Affairs minister Sushma Swaraj raised this specific issue to Sergey Lavrov, the Russian foreign minister, at their meeting in Moscow. The Ministry spokesperson Vikas Swarup clarified that Russia has confirmed it will look into the matter and revert back to the Indian Government if and when there is information.
Prime minister Narendra Modi in his meeting with the family of Netaji had specifically clarified that the Indian Government has urged the other countries to declassify files in this case and that his government would fight tooth and nail for this to happen.
Netaji’s family has always maintained that other nations’ governments always has and have had information on him, urging them to declassify the files but to no avail.
Now, it remains to be seen whether the present Government can do the trick and at-last solve this great mystery about the death of one of India’s finest freedom fighters.
