West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today demanded that Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose be given the title of “Leader of the Nation”, and said the country has the right to know the truth about his mysterious disappearance.

“The country has the right to know about the fate of Netaji. 75 years ago, Netaji left the country, but we still don’t know the fact about his disappearance. People have the right to know the truth,” Banerjee said at a function organised to celebrate Netaji’s 119th birth anniversary today.

“We want to see the files which would bring to light the details of Netaji’s disappearance. The truth about Netaji’s disappearance must come out through documentation and proof. Netaji must be given the title of ‘Leader of the Nation’. He deserves this honour,” she said.

Banerjee said it is the government’s responsibility toward the youth and future generations to share with them the truth about Netaji’s disappearance.

The TMC government in September last year had released 64 “secret” files related to Netaji.

In New Delhi, Prime Minister Narendra Modi today made public digital copies of 100 secret files relating to Netaji which could throw some light on the controversy over his death.
