NEW DELHI: Demanding declassification of the files related to the disappearance of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, members of a forum -- Long March 4 Netaji-- staged a hunger strike and agitation at Jantar Mantar here on Tuesday. However, they ended the strike after receiving an assurance form the Central government.
They were demanding to make public the secret files, documents and probes related to the mysterious disappearances and death of the Azad Hind Fauj founder.
Earlier in the day, national convener of the organisation Amlan Kusum Ghosh told Express that neither the erstwhile Congress-led UPA Government nor the incumbent BJP-led NDA Government was serious about the issue.
“The government is hiding around 70,000 pages and 180 files. These should be made public and the country must know what happened to Netaji,” said Ghosh adding, “all governments have cheated us”.
