Netaji Subash Chandra Bose’s great granddaughter on Monday said that former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru had conspired with the British to hide the truth about Netaji’s mysterious disappearance.
Addressing a news conference in Jaipur, Chaudhary said Nehru had struck a deal with the British keep the conspiracy against Netaji under wraps so the he could become the first Prime Minister of India.
“Thanks to Nehru, we have been taught that the British left from India out of empathy. But the truth is that Netaji's army-- Azad Hind Fauj-- had shaken the foundations of the British Empire and made them vulnerable."
“Nehru conspired against Netaji and struck a deal with the British to become the Prime Minister and… be a part of the Commonwealth,” she said.
Accusing India's first Prime Minister of laying the foundation for a corrupt and power hungry system, she said: “Today, we are witnessing a rotten political and social system and this is due to the misdeeds of Nehru…We demand that all the ‘classified files on Netaji held by the government should be released."
“The Nehru-Gandhi family has tried their best to jeopardize successive commissions set up by the government to unravel the truth behind Netaji’s disappearance in 1945"
"It is important for us to know the truth about Netaji...Nehru did everything to stop the people of this country to know about their beloved leader. He deliberately interfered with the commissions.”
She further said that until now, four commissions have been set up to unravel the mystery behind Netaji’s death which mostly focused on proving that a plane crash on August 18, 1954 had killed him.
“But nobody bothered about of knowing whether Netaji was in that plane or not."
“What really happened needs to be found out.”
