New Delhi: Congress accused the BJP-led NDA government on Wednesday of making a concerted effort to rewrite history, saying it had stoked new controversy over Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s death and demanded an apology from the government.
“The BJP stoked the plot around Netaji’s death. It took the power of the RTI to reveal the government’s true position,” Congress said on its Twitter account.
Congress spokesman Ajoy Kumar said that after the BJP came to power, there had been a concerted attempt to denigrate the leaders of the freedom struggle, whether it was Jawaharlal Nehru, Sardar Patel or Mahatma Gandhi.
“There was a concerted and orchestrated effort by the BJP to rewrite history. The ‘dirty stuff department’ of BJP and RSS created a story about Netaji’s death,” Kumar said.
Kumar accused the Modi government of spreading “lies” and said, “People have continued to spread this lie, this disinformation and should apologize to the people of this country.”
“Today there is the limit to the lack of shame where the government gives a response to RTI saying that Netaji died in a plane crash. It is in response to RTI by the government,” a- he declared.
Bose died in a plane crash in 1945, the government announced, ending controversy over whether the freedom fighter survived the crash.
The Home Office said in a response to an RTI request from a Kolkata resident that the government came to this conclusion after reviewing reports from various committees that investigated Bose’s death, which it claims many, had not perished in the accident. .
