netaji: Undoing efforts of past to obliterate many heroes: PM Modi | India News – Times of India

NEW DELHI: PM Narendra Modi on Sunday unveiled a hologram of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose at India Gate, putting the legendary hero of the freedom struggle on the same pedestal as Gandhi, Nehru, Patel and Ambedkar.
Emphasising that the hologram of Netaji will soon be replaced by a one cast in stone, the PM said that installation of the “giant statue” close to the National War Museum at India Gate and near Parliament marks a “homage to the hero of freedom by the grateful nation and will keep reminding our instititutions and coming generations the lesson of national duty”.
Modi said the recognition that Netaji deserved was denied to him. “It is unfortunate that after independence, along with the traditions of country, the contributions of many great personalities were also sought to be erased,” PM Modi said.
“The freedom struggle involved ‘tapasya’ of lakhs, but attempt were made to diminish their contributions. But today country is boldly correcting those mistakes,” PM said as he referred to measures such as hoisting of Indian National Army flag, participation of INA contingent in 2018 Republic Day parade, declassification of files and measures to commemorate the INA inside the Red Fort.
