Clearing the air around the death of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, the Centre while responding to query under the Right to Information Act concluded that the veteran leader died in a plane crash on August 18, 1945. Names and photos of various people have been circulated pointing to the leader living out the rest of his days in disguise. "How can the government conclude Netaji's death without concrete evidence?" asked Netaji's grandnephew and Bengal BJP vice president Chandra Bose, the Indian Express reported. His disappearance/death has always been a highly debatable topic, where the government claims that Netaji died, his followers and family members have never taken these words at face value.

Furious at the report, Chandra Kumar Bose, grand nephew of Subash Chandra Bose, has appealed to the Prime Minister and has said that the reply was irresponsible without understanding the concept and without any research.

Bose said the Mukherjee Commission was set up as other panels had failed to give a conclusive answer, but that it had clearly stated that Netaji did not die in the plane crash. "Mukherjee Commission had come to the conclusion that Gumnami Baba/Bhagwanji was not Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose", the MHA said.

We want entire government to be on the same page as the Prime Minister.

According to him, the Mukherjee Commission had stated that Netaji did not die in the plane crash and went to China or Russian Federation.

Bose asserted that the report was suppressed by the nehru Congress Government. The Home ministry's spokesman further clarified that the reply to the RTI query was "based on the facts that were already in the public domain and the stand taken by Central governments over the years". I know that he is determined to solve this mystery, Bose added.

The definitive answer, when many questions remain about Bose's death, has not gone down well with his family.
