Berlin : Subhas Chandra Bose’s family, still awaiting a response from Prime Minister Narendra Modi over declassifying files on the “mystery” surrounding Netaji, has approached the UK asserting it has the relevant documents on him.
Netaji’s grandnephew Surya Kumar Bose, who had met Modi on the issue during his visit here in April, said he had written a letter to him days after the meeting but is yet to receive any response.
Asked about Modi government’s approach on the issue, Surya said he was hopeful on securing “closure” to the “mystery” over the issue. “I am hopeful because I think Modi has the guts to do it and I have told him quite frankly that we are ready to face whatever comes out, whether it is positive or negative or whatever it is. We have to face the music. Because we have been asking for it,” he said. The family has approached the UK government, asserting that it has classified files on him besides Japan and Russia.
