NEW DELHI: Terming Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose's disappearance as the "mother of all conspiracies", an article in RSS mouthpiece 'Organiser' has asked the Modi government to take the 'bold' step of unravelling the mystery over his death.
"Many such conspiracy theories are associated with the Nehru-Gandhi family, but this is turning out to be the mother of all conspiracies. It is clear now that the Congress Party and especially Nehru-Gandhi family has lot many questions to answer on Netaji and other leaders with different ideological positions. The irony is the same Nehru and his heirs claim to be the founders of democracy and tolerance in Bharat... "If this bold step towards resolving Netaji’s death mystery is not taken by Narender Modi Government, I don’t think anyone else will be able in future to do that. And the mystery of Netaji will remain as a mystery forever," the cover article in the RSS organ entitled "The mother of all conspiracies" said.
The article comes after West Bengal government declassified files pertaining to Netaji, claiming that it has ratified the suspicion about the cover up surrounding Netaji’s death and shameful conspiracy of spying his family members.
"The Government should investigate where Netaji actually died, which I hope eventually will come out," the article author, who has researched on Netaji said.
It said Netaji was popular among masses with his revolutionary zeal and his international stature was also much higher than Nehru during the freedom struggle.
"He was the one who formed first Independent Government of Bharat in exile, which was recognised by more than 11 countries. Unfortunately, this history is deliberately washed out from our memory by the post-Independence leadership," the article said.
The article said, "On one hand Nehru restricted Netaji to enter India, but at the same time one more question raised where has the money of Netaji and INA gone? Netaji went to Singapore because of Lord Mountbatten’s request and met many bank officers. But why that is still a mystery?."
It further said, "we should also find out the information about the money and jewellery donated by thousands of Indians living in South East Asia to Netaji?"
The article also said, "It is sad that the person who asked for blood of Bharateeyas for Independence could not have his last breath on the motherland, his family was spied and his associates were treated as criminals in the post-Independent Bharat. Declassification of files on Netaji Bose by the Paschim Banga Government has ratified the suspicion about the cover up surrounding Netaji’s death and shameful conspiracy of spying his family members."
