NEW DELHI: RSS mouthpiece Panchjanya on Tuesday demanded a probe into a purported letter written by India’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru to the then British Prime Minister Clement Attlee describing Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose as a ‘war criminal’ so as to unravel the truth.

Attacking Congress leaders of the past for attempting to “bury the truth” of Netaji’s disappearance, the cover article of the magazine pressed for a transparent national policy on making important documents public.

It also attacked former prime ministers Indira Gandhi, Narasimha Rao and Manmohan Singh for toeing the Nehru-Gandhi line on the issue and hailed Prime Minister Narendra Modi for  declassifying 100 files on Netaji’s life and his disappearance on the latter’s 119th birthday, which it said would provide ‘insights’.

“These files will give us valuable insights into the sudden disappearance of Netaji and an opportunity to analyse the peculiar mindset of Congress leaders who kept attempting to bury the information on this subject,” the RSS has claimed in its mouthpiece.
