PM Modi meets 35 family members of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose at his residence
Process of declassification of files will begin on January 23rd, 2016, says PM Modi
Nations that forget history also lose the power to create it: PM Narendra Modi

35 family members of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose today called on the Prime Minister, Shri Narendra Modi at his residence, 7 Race Course Road. 

During the hour-long interaction, the family members requested for declassification of the files relating to Netaji, available with the Government of India. They suggested that the Government of India initiate the process to get the files on Netaji available with foreign Governments to also be declassified.

The Prime Minister said that he finds the suggestions of the family members of Netaji to be similar to his own thinking and the view of the Union Government. He said he sees no reason to strangle history. He declared that the process of declassification of files will begin on January 23rd, 2016, the birthday of Netaji.

The Prime Minister also agreed to take up the suggestion to request foreign Governments to declassify files on Netaji available with them. He said he would not only write to them, but also take up the matter during his meetings with foreign leaders, beginning with Russia in December.

The Prime Minister said that those nations who forget history also lose the power to create it. He also shared with the family members some instances of how he had recalled Netaji during his term as the Chief Minister of Gujarat.

"Consider me a part of your family," the Prime Minister said to the family members of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.

Union Ministers Shri Rajnath Singh, Smt. Sushma Swaraj, and Union MoS Shri Babul Supriyo were present on the occasion.
