Netaji’s kin opine Bharat Ratna is inappropriate for the leader

With the tittle-tattle around Bharat Ratna to be conferred on Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose, a majority of his family members disapproved of the idea and decided not to accept it. Netaji's grandnephew Chandra Kumar Bose said, “Netaji has been missing since 1945. When you award him with Bharat Ratna posthumously, you have to say when he died, but where is the evidence? The best way to honour him is to declassify government files which can reveal the truth behind his disappearance".
Around 60 family members of Bose feel that Bharat Ratna is not the appropriate award for him, rather sought the government to solve the mystery of his disappearance. Netaji had escaped from India in 1941 to seek international support for India's freedom struggle, when he was house arrested by the British. He went missing in 1945, giving birth to India's most debated mystery ever.
Recently, the members of the Open Platform for Netaji and his family have written to Prime Minister Modi demanding formation of a Special Investigation Team under the supervision of a sitting judge of the Supreme Court to investigate into Netaji's disappearance.
