New Delhi, Jan 23 (ANI): Granddaughter of Subhas Chandra Bose Jayanti Rakshit on Saturday said that is a big question why files were kept untouched. She added that since the declassified files were not opened for a longer duration, they didn't have the opportunity to read them. She even Jawaharlal Nehru was "reluctant" to declassify the files. She further added that they were hopeful that they will know the truth. Bose's grand nephew, on the other hand, said it is not easy to read the history that was hidden and distorted for nearly 70 years and it required a detailed scrutinization. He said that the entire nation wanted to know about Netaji's death and the Prime Minister kept his promise.
