Statue of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose to be installed at India Gate

Statue of Netaji

Prime Minister Narendra Modi announced on Friday that a grand statue of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose will be installed at India Gate “as a symbol of India’s indebtedness to him” ahead of his 125th birthday on January 23.

“At a time when the entire nation is commemorating Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s 125th birthday, I am pleased to announce that his grand granite statue will be installed at India Gate.” PM Modi tweeted, “This would be a symbol of India’s debt to him.”

“Until the grand statue of Netaji Bose is completed, a hologram statue of him will be present at the same location,” he added. On the 23rd of January, Netaji’s birthday, I will unveil the hologram statue.”

The statue will be installed in the canopy and will take the place of the Amar Jawan Jyoti, who will be merged with the National War Memorial Torch’s eternal flame on Friday. According to sources familiar with the situation, the upcoming statue will be 28 feet*6 feet in size.

The statue, according to Home Minister Amit Shah, is a fitting tribute to Subhas Chandra Bose. “Netaji is a symbol of India’s true strength and determination. He tweeted, “Congress has left no stone unturned to forget India’s brave son’s immortal contributions.”

Nothing the Prime Minister does, according to Congress spokesperson Pawan Khera, will undo the historical betrayal of Netaji by the Hindu Mahasabha under Sawarkar.

“When Netaji was forming the INA to free the North East from British rule, Sawarkar urged Hindu Mahasabha members to join the British army. The same army then went on a killing spree against INA soldiers. If the Prime Minister were to read his ideological forefathers’ shameful history, he would first apologise to the nation.”

Last week, a government official announced that this year’s Republic Day celebrations will begin on January 23 rather than January 24, to coincide with Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s birth anniversary, as part of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s “focus to commemorate important aspects of our history and culture.”

The central government declared January 23 as Parakram Diwas, or Day of Valour, last year.

Chandra Bose, a member of the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party, wrote to Prime Minister Narendra Modi ahead of Netaji’s 125th birth anniversary this year, requesting that the freedom fighter’s image be printed on currency notes. He also suggested that January 23 be declared a national holiday.
