MADURAI: Continuing his attack on the Narendra Modi government at the Centre, MDMK chief Vaiko today said the party would organise a 'peaceful protest' at Chennai on December 23 demanding the facts related to the mysterious disappearance of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose to be made public.
In a release, NDA ally Vaiko said the BJP had earlier wanted all the facts on the matter to be made public but now was claiming that it would affect diplomatic ties.
He said the MDMK would hold a 'peaceful demonstration' on December 23 demanding release of all files regarding Netaji's disappearance and to condemn the Centre for not disclosing the facts.
Vaiko had last week condemned the BJP-led NDA government for declining to make public the classified files on Netaji's disappearance and said his party would hold a protest pressing for the truth.
Recently, the Prime Minister's Office in a RTI reply accepted that there were 41 files related to Bose, of which two had been declassified, but refused to disclose them taking a position similar to that of the erstwhile Congress-led UPA government.
The state BJP has recently slammed Vaiko for his criticism of the NDA government on various issues including Prime Minister Narendra Modi's greetings to Sri Lankan President Mahinda Rajapaksa and 'imposition' of Hindi.
