Sena MP said, “As we celebrate ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav’ and oath to grant pride in our heritage as a part of the Panchpran’, I am writing this letter to you in consent of the request of Ms Anita Bose Pfaff, daughter of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, to bring his last remains back to Bharat.”
On Thursday ( 18 Aug), the anniversary of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s death, Shiv Sena MP Priyanka Chaturvedi wrote a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi urging him and the Ministry of External Affairs to bring back Bose’s remains.
The Shiv Sena MP said that it would be the country’s “greatest honor” to commemorate Netaji’s “sacrifice and dedication” to the independence of India.
The National Archives reports that Netaji’s remains are kept at the Renkoji Temple in Tokyo. On this date in 1945, Netaji went missing. There is divided opinion among historians as to whether he died in a plane crash or lived in hiding for the rest of his life.
