Shocking revelations from the declassified files of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose.
As per the records in connection with Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, which were declassified by the PMO, the Home Ministry (MHA) and the Intelligence Bureau (IB) in August 1976 educated the Ministry regarding External Affairs (MEA) to “persuade the Japanese authorities to continue to retain the ashes with them” to “best avoid” controversy.
'I want to sleep' were Subhash Babu's last words that he said before dying.
The British government did not so much trust that Bose was dead. Notwithstanding for a few months after the Japanese reported Netaji's passing, the British government kept on talking about methods for 'dealing with him'.
The Indian government was "not inclined to favour" the bringing back of Netaji's fiery debris kept in Renkoji sanctuary, Tokyo "because of conceivable unfriendly responses from individuals from Netaji's family, and certain areas of general society, who declined to put stock in his passing in the plane accident in August, 1945".
As per the secret reports arranged by the home service in 1977, the Indian consulate was paying the temple authorities in Tokyo Rs 5000 a year for the care of the opportunity warrior's fiery remains.
The head priest present at the temple sought some kind of fame in the form of a letter or a medal from our government for the trouble he took to keep the ashes with him.
The Indian government paid Rs 6000 every month to Netaji's little girl after his wife declined the offer. The installment was ended in 1965 after her marriage.
By letter composed by antiquarian Peter Simkins, Netaji's name was not in the British government's rundown of war culprits yet he was viewed as a double crosser.
Subhash Chandra Bose's Indian National Army (INA), raised from caught Indian soldiers of war in Japanese camps, was the battling power of his Provisional Government of Free India. The INA ripped at the fringes of the British-ruled subcontinent in 1943 and its troops were the first to raise the tricolor on Indian soil. Presently, in 1944, the breakdown of the Japanese armed force prompted the retreat and possible capitulation of the INA. Bose, 48, was thought to have passed on in an air crash in Taiwan on August 18, 1945, three days after Japan's surrender to the Allied powers.
Wonder, what would be the result of these declassification of files.
