New Delhi : To mark the 120th birth anniversary of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, Prime Minister Narendra Modi paid tribute to the freedom fighter.

In a series of tweets, PM Modi hailed Bose for his contribution towards the freedom of the nation. PM Modi also made some files related to Bose available on internet.

“Files relating to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose are available on,” Modi tweeted.

 “I salute Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose on his birth anniversary. His valour played a major role in freeing India from colonialism,” he said.

In another tweet he said, “Netaji Bose was a great intellectual who always thought about the interests & wellbeing of the marginalised sections of society.”

Modi also patted his own government for declassifying files on Netaji.

“Honoured that our Government got the opportunity to declassify files relating to Netaji Bose & fulfil a popular demand pending for decade,” another tweet said.

The first lot of 100 files relating to Bose were put in the public domain by PM Modi on 23 January last year, on the occasion of the 119th birth anniversary of Netaji.

West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee also paid her tributes to Netaji on Twitter.
