Netaji will live in our hearts for his patriotism: Sonia Gandhi

Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose

New Delhi: On the occasion of 119th birth anniversary of great Indian leader, Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, Congress President Sonia Gandhi said that he will always live in the hearts of all Indian for his unmatched patriotism.

On Netaji’s birth anniversary, she remembered him as one of the greatest sons of the country.

“He (Bose) will always live in the hearts of all Indians for his patriotic fervour and dedication to the Indian Republic,” she said.

The death of the former Congress President and once a close associate of Mahatma Gandhi, Bose, reported in a plane crash in Formosa, now Taiwan, in 1945 has remained a mystery.

His patriotism and struggle for a free India made him the hero of the country. Not only did he led the India National Congress in late 1920s and 1930s but also formed an India Army with the captured Indian soldiers in Singapore.

Sonia Gandhi said that the nation and the Congress Party can never forget his contribution to the national struggle for freedom.

All the political parties paid homage to Subhas Chandra Bose. PM Narendra Modi also declassified some of the files related to the leader and his mysterious death. Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee also had disclosed some files earlier this week.
