The Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi has saluted Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, on his birth anniversary.

Netaji Bose was a great intellectual who always thought about the interests & wellbeing of the marginalised sections of society. Honoured that our Government got the opportunity to declassify files relating to Netaji Bose & fulfil a popular demand pending for decades. Files relating to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose are available on http://www.netajipapers.gov.in", the Prime Minister said.
