A Forward Bloc member in the Rajya Sabha on Tuesday attacked the government for rejecting recommendations of the Justice Mukherjee Committee which went into the disappearance of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.
Raising the issue during Zero Hour, Barun Mukherjee (FB) said it was regrettable that even after 60 years, the government was not able to unravel the mystery of Netaji's death.
Demanding scrapping of the Action Taken Report (ATR), he said India should stop providing funds to the temple which had the urn allegedly containing ashes of Netaji.
Mukherjee wanted a full-fledged discussion on the Committee's report to which Home Minister Shivraj Patil said the government was ready to have a debate as and when Presiding Officer decides.
Through another mention, JD(U) leader Digvijay Singh demanded setting up of a museum on Buddha in Patna coinciding with his the 2050th birth anniversary.
