FB for nationwide agitation on Netaji issue
Kolkata, Jun 5 (UNI) The All India Forward Bloc will launch a countrywide movement, including a march to Parliament, to pressure the Congress-led UPA Government to accept the findings of Justice Manoj Mukherjee Commission on the mysterious disappearance of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose.
''The government has rejected the Mukherjee Commission report without any basis. We will organise rallies in all state capitals on July 12 and submit memoranda to the respective Governors to be followed by a march to Parliament on July 26. Our volunteers would assemble in Delhi from all parts of the country,'' party's West Bengal State Committee Secretary Ashok Ghosh today said.
The party would also demand that the Government withdraw its Action Taken Report (ATR) on the subject and take immediate steps for removal of the ''so called remains'' of Netaji from Renkoji Temple in Japan.
Mr Ghosh alleged that from the time of Jawaharlal Nehru the Congress had been into a deliberate campaign to create an impression that Netaji had been killed in a plane crash in Taiwan in 1945.
Refuting that such an incident had really taken place, the Mukherjee Commission had reported that there was no such evidence.
The Government, however, rejected the report.
Condemning the Government action, Netaji's nephew Subrata Basu, an MP in the Lok Sabha had recently demanded that the whole issue be probed afresh to reveal the truth.
