Kolkata, April 17: Batting for the declassification of secret government files on Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, Congress MP Deepender Singh Hooda on Friday said he has moved a bill proposing to me an army regiment after the tiolist leader. Amid the raging controversy over the alleged snooping of Netaji’s kin by the successive Congress governments, the Lok Sabha member from Rohtak described the suggestions of rivalry between Bose and late prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru as “misconstrued”. “Netaji’s Indian tiol Army had regiments med after Gandhi, Nehru, and Maula Azad. So, why can’t Bose be the first individual to have an Indian Army regiment med after him?” “I have moved a private member bill in parliament proposing to set up a regiment after Bose in the Indian Army,” Hooda told media persons at an event organised by the Indian Chamber Of Commerce here. Hooda also asserted that there was no rivalry between Nehru and Bose, rather they were aligned on economic policies. “All this talk of Bose-Nehru rivalry is misconstrued and being needlessly created. The fact was both the leaders were aligned on economic policies and batted for socialism. It was rather Sardar Patel who was opposed to Bose,” said Hooda. Even as he refused to comment on the snooping controversy, Hooda said all classified documents should be publicised for the truth to come out. (IANS)
