West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee said on Thursday that Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose opposed the Hindu Mahasabha’s “divisive politics” and fought for a secular and united India.

Demanding that his birth anniversary be declared a national holiday, Banerjee said Bose through his struggle has sent the message of respecting all faiths and the best tribute to him would be to fight for a united India.

“Netaji had opposed the Hindu Mahasabha’s divisive politics. He had fought for a secular India. Now efforts are on to oust those who follow secularism,” Banerjee said at an event here to celebrate Bose’s birth anniversary.

She also slammed the Centre for “not being serious” about unravelling the mystery shrouding Bose’s disappearance.
