Prime Minister Narendra Modi today proposed setting up of an Indian National Army (INA) memorial in Myanmar to commemorate the sacrifices of those who fought against the British rule. “Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose made the clarion call of ‘Give me blood and I will give you freedom’ in Myanmar and thousands of men and women responded,” Modi said while addressing the Indian diaspora here.

Prime Minister Modi said India and Myanmar can together do a survey for an INA memorial here. Naming Mahatma Gandhi, Bal Gangadhar Tilak, Rabindranath Tagore and Bahadur Shah Zafar, he said Myanmar had become the “second home” for those who had to leave their own homes during the freedom struggle.

The INA also known as ‘Azad Hind Fauj’ was formed by Indian nationalists in 1942 in Southeast Asia during World War II to secure Indian independence from British rule.
