After Subhas’s brother Sarat’s return from Europe, intelligence agencies followed his development when he held meetings with Forward Bloc and Socialist Republican Party leaders. During one of these meetings with key party functionaries like Leela Roy, Satya Bakshi and the likes, Sarat announced the information that he had attained in Europe regarding Subhas Chandra Bose’s participation in the Chinese Liberation Movement. He believed Netaji was alive and continued to be in China.

During a time when Sarat Bose was trying to bring Leftist parties together, including Forward Bloc and Socialist Republican Party, in search for a common formula to work unitedly against the Congress, a note dated January 26, 1949, an intelligence agency quoted Sarat Bose affirming Subhas Chandra Bose’s contribution in the Communist Party’s victory in China.

The intelligence agency inputs further attest that Sarat Bose was also trying to unite those who believed in Netaji’s ideologies.

Samsung has postponed the Galaxy Fold’s launch events in Hong Kong and Shanghai, which were originally scheduled for April 23 and 24, days after some units of the $2,000 foldable phone encountered major display issues.

“The firm is blaming the decision on a last minute issue with the venue, according to someone claiming to be familiar with the matter.

“But that seems a little too convenient seeing as the handset has been under heavy fire all week, after a number of units broke after being in the hands of reviewers for less than a day,” the SamMobile reported late on Sunday.

Tech reviewers from renowned media brands like The Verge and the CNBC noted issues like screen flickering, display distortion and unexplainable bulges bugging the industry-first device, reports said last week.

The handset maker obviously doesn’t want to associate these delays with the broken review units, but given the timing, chances are Samsung wants to buy more time to address these issues before the next wave of shipments, according to the Engadget.

Sub-titling the review “Yikes”, The Verge said that the flaws were “distressing to be discovered just two days after receiving the review unit”.

Defending its devices just days before its roll-out, a Samsung spokesperson assured that the firm would “thoroughly inspect” the units.

The super-expensive foldable smartphone was launched during the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona in February followed by Huawei launching its own foldable phone, the Mate X.

According to market research firm Gartner, foldable phones would make up 5 per cent of high-end phones sales by 2023 with around 30 million units.
