Prime Minister Modi hoists national flag to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Azad Hind Government

In a historic occasion, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday hoisted the national flag at the Red Fort in New Delhi to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the Azad Hind Government formed by Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. The historic event was attended by few survivors of Azad Hind Fauz and other veterans who had served in Indian Armed forces.

On October 21, 1943, Bose had announced the formation of the country’s first independent government which was called the Azad Hind Government. 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. The city remained under the control of the Azad Hind Government for almost four months during which it had issued currency and stamps.

The event was organised by Netaji’s grand-nephew and BJP Bengal vice-president Chandra Kumar Bose, who had invited Prime Minister Modi to inaugurate the Azad Hind museum at Red Fort on October 21 and hoist the tricolour to commemorate the occasion. The Prime Minister on Wednesday while interacting with the party workers through video-conference had announced the decision to attend the event.

Reportedly, Prime Minister Modi decided to hoist the national flag at Red Fort at the same venue where infamous trials against the soldiers of the Indian National Army (INA) were carried out by the British.

Prime Minister Modi hailing the efforts of Subhash Chandra Bose in the freedom struggle, said, “Netaji had promised an India where everyone has equal rights and equal opportunities. He had promised a prosperous nation which was proud of its traditions, development in all areas. He had promised to uproot ‘divide & rule’. Even after so many years, those dreams remain unfulfilled”.

PM Modi also thrashed Congress and the Nehru family for trying to erase the legacy of the Netaji Subash Chandra Bose. The Prime Minister said that he was hurt the way only one family was glorified all these years and blamed one family for ignoring freedom fighters like Netaji, Br Ambedkar and Sardar Patel.

PM Modi also spoke about his government’s decision to release the files related to Netaji into the public domain. “In last 4 years, several measures were taken to strengthen the defence. Best technologies were brought to the defence. This government has the strength to make big and tough decisions, it’ll continue. Be it the surgical strike or making the files of Netaji public, the decision was taken by our government,” he said.

The Prime Minister further mentioned his government’s initiative to fulfil the promise of One Rank One Pension which was ignored by the Congress-led United Progressive Alliance (UPA) government.

Earlier today, The Prime Minister also dedicated National Police Memorial (NPM) to the nation on the occasion of Police Commemoration Day. The memorial is a tribute to police personnel who sacrificed their lives while on duty since independence. PM Modi admired the efforts of police personnel in maintaining peace in the country. He also inaugurated the museum dedicated to the Indian police.
