Netaji opposed Hindu Mahasabha's divisive politics, fought for secular India: Mamata Banerjee


Darjeeling (WB), Jan 23: West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said on Thursday that Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose opposed the Hindu Mahasabha's "divisive politics" and fought for a secular and united India.

Demanding that his birth anniversary be declared a national holiday, Banerjee said Bose through his struggle has sent the message of respecting all faiths and the best tribute to him would be to fight for a united India.

"Netaji had opposed the Hindu Mahasabha's divisive politics. He had fought for a secular India", she said.
