Taking to Twitter, President Kovind said the daring steps taken by Netaji to fulfil his fierce commitment to the idea of 'free India' - Azad Hind make him a national icon. His ideals and sacrifice will forever inspire every citizen, he added.

PM Modi also wished the country a very Happy Parakram Diwas as he paid tributes to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose on his 125th birth anniversary.

Meanwhile, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee appealed to Prime Minister to declare Netaji's birthday as a national holiday.

"We again appeal to the Central Government that Netaji's birthday be declared a National Holiday to allow the entire Nation to pay homage to the National Leader and celebrate #DeshNayakDibas in most befitting manner," she said.

The day is also celebrated as 'Parakram Diwas' (day of valour) to mark the monumental contribution of the iconic freedom fighter. This year, the Republic Day celebration will commence from January 23 to include the birth anniversary of the Indian icon.
