West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee on Friday said that Netaji's files would be made public next week. Sixty four files of Netaji, Indian Nationalist and a prominent figure in the Indian Independence Movement, will be declassified and made public, putting an end to all the speculation and debate over his mysterious disappearance.

Files from 1937 to 1947 will be made public on September 18, Friday. The move was welcomed by the Netaji's kin.

"West Bengal government has decided to make Public all files and documents concerning Netaji. We know Netaji's date of birth. We have no idea about his death. People deserve to know about his last days,” said Banerjee.

She added, "We want to maintain transparency and accountability. People must know about Netaji. He was a national icon,”

Mamata assured that these files at the Kolkata Police archives will be declassified. Apart from that the West Bengal Government will digitize all the files from 1917 -1947.
