All files on Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose lying with the Centre will be disclosed and the Centre is only taking time because they have links to several nations, according to West Bengal BJP president Rahul Sinha.

“The files related to Netaji are related to several nations and that is why the Centre is taking time to declassify them. But the files will be made public,” Sinha told reporters here.

Sinha, however, had a dig at the ruling Trinamool Congress for “indirectly doing politics” over declassification of the state government’s own Netaji files and “it is their ploy to win next year’s Assembly elections by riding on the emotions linked with the great leader”.

He asserted that if those files were declassified “nothing will happen to the BJP, but both the Congress and the communists will be embarrassed”.

He said the Centre’s eventual release of Netaji files to the public “will disappoint the Trinamool Congress.”

Union home minister Rajnath Singh on Sunday had stated that the decision on Netaji files lying with the Centre would be made soon.

After declassification of 64 files by the West Bengal government, Mamata Banerjee had demanded that the Centre follow suit.

She reiterated the demand during the day in the state Assembly.
