Bharatiya Janata Party leader Subramanian Swamy on Friday said that he would move court against the Central Government, if it doesn’t declassify the files related to Netaji Subhash Bose by the end of this year.
I have already told the government to declassify the files or else I will move court by the year end. They don’t have an authority to keep the files of Subhash Bose in secret, Swamy told ANI.
The courage that Mamata Banerjee has shown is commendable and the Central Government should also declassify files related to Bose. This should have been done earlier, he added.
Swamy also said the reason given by the bureaucrats, that the declassification of these files would hamper the foreign relations, is totally baseless.
There is no Soviet Union now and in England the Labour Party is no more in power so it won’t hamper the foreign relations but it would defame Nehru and the Congress party, he added.
Acknowledging that there was a long-standing demand for the declassification of the files on Bose, West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had announced that her government would be declassifying 64 files related to Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose on September 18.
