Chandra Kumar Bose, a grandnephew of Subhas Chandra Bose, joined the BJP Monday, two days after 100 files — which could throw light on the mystery over Netaji’s death — were made public by Prime Minister Narendra Modi. He joined the party at a rally in Howrah in the presence of Amit Shah.

Asked if the BJP was looking to him as a winning card in the upcoming state elections, Bose said his job is to “bring back inclusivity”.

“Netaji’s ideal wish was that India should be inclusive where there is unity among all religions. It must be made a reality,” he said.

              What I learnt from Secular Politics: - Terror has no religion. - Suicide has caste. - Gaza is in India. - Kashmir is in Neptune. - Bull sport is animal cruelty. - Slaughtering cows is freedom

                  The communists, the congress party pseudo secular s, and the TMC s like Derek O'Brian have ruined W.Bengal's economy and has made W.Bengal an haven for Islamic Jihadis. Now the Subhas Chandra Bose’s g-nephew joining the developmental oriented BJP might spell relief for W.Bengal.

                      This is very disappointing. While I applaud the declification of Netaji's secret files, it is sad to see that the BJP is no different from the Congress when it comes to dynastic politics. Netaji Bose belongs to the entire nation, not just to the BJP who are now trying to use his legacy to fight the state elections in West Bengal. The politicization of one of India's greatest sons for electoral benefit is a shameful misuse of Netaji Bose's great legacy.
