PM Modi to commemorate formation of Netaji’s ‘Azad Hind government’ by hoisting tricolour in Red Fort

PM Modi will join freedom fighters and Indian National Army (INA) veterans and followers of Netaji Subash Chandra Bose who plan to raise the Indian tricolour at the Red Fort on October 21 to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the establishment of Azad Hind Government as per reports.

Netaji’s grand-nephew and BJP Bengal vice-president Chandra Kumar Bose and Chairman of SNSMT Suparno Satpathy had requested the PM to inaugurate the Azad Hind museum at Red Fort on October 21 and hoist the Tricolor there to commemorate the occasion. The PM has reportedly accepted the invitation.

PM Modi in his address to BJP workers has stated that the stories of many great freedom fighters have been neglected and his government is trying to give the great legends who made a lot of sacrifices for the people of India their due.

The BJP-led National Democratic Alliance government had unveiled some of the classified files dealing with Bose after coming to power in 2014.

Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose had managed to escape from the clutches of the British rule. He believed that an armed struggle was needed to throw out the British from India. He went on to form his Azad Hind military force. On October 21, 1943, he had established the provincial Azad Hind Government in Singapore. On August 14 the next year, the Bahadur brigade of INA, led by Col Shaukat Ali Malik, captured Moirang, a town in Manipur on the Indo-Myanmar border. Moirang remained under the control of the Azad Hind Government for nearly four months during which its currency and stamps too were used.

The PM will also launch work for a museum in the special barracks of the Red-Fort where the British government had held trials for the INA soldiers.

The Azad Hind Government had then been recognised by 11 countries and it had its embassies in other countries too.
