Kolkata: The West Bengal government on Friday made public 64 files on freedom fighter Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose to help unravel the mystery behind his disappearance.

The digitised version of the declassified 64 files were made available in a set of seven DVDs. The original files have been archived at the Calcutta Police Museum. The files comprise 12,744 pages and are available to researchers and scholars.

After a small ceremony at the museum, they were handed over to descendants of Netaji and mediapersons by Kolkata Police Commissioner S.K. Purkayastha.

Earlier, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on September 11 announced her government’s decision to declassify 64 files on Bose, saying the mystery surrounding his disappearance needs to be put to rest.

“The mystery of Netaji’s disappearance is still unsolved. So whatever files we have, we will publicize them which may help in unravelling the mystery. All the 64 files that we have will be open for public. They will be kept at the city police archive,” said Banerjee.

Mamata cares for Mukesh Ambani, not for those dying from dengue: Vijayvargiya

Canning (West Bengal): BJP national General Secretary Kailash Vijayvargiya on Thursday slammed West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee for meeting industrialist Mukesh Ambani in Mumbai at a time when her state is in the grip of dengue.

“You are in Mumbai to meet Mukesh Ambani. A 21-year-old youth died in Kolkata’s alleys due to lack of treatment. You don’t care for him but you care for Mukesh Ambani because he is a crorepati and he will give you funds for elections.

“Thousands of people are dying in the state from dengue. But shameless government and shameless CM is saying it’s not dengue but something else… ,” he said here.

Banerjee on Tuesday met Reliance Industries chairman Mukesh Ambani and requested him to invest in her state.

The Chief Minister had a one and half hour meeting with Ambani soon after reaching the country’s financial capital where she is scheduled to attend a business conclave on Wednesday.

Banerjee later told reporters that Ambani would attend the Bengal Global Business Summit organised by her government in January 16-17 in Kolkata.

Vijayvargiya also took potshots at the higher education system in the state.

“Calcutta University is at the 800th position among 1000 varsities. You are downgrading the level of education in the state. It’s has gone down so much that now CU is giving D.Litt to Mamata. Where one time CU had given D.Litt to Nobel Laureate Rabindranath Tagore, now it’s Mamata. Where is Raja Bhoj, where is Gangu Teli?” he mocked.(IANS)
