As a great effort to re-introduce and recognize India’s leaders in an honourable way, Prime Minister Narendra Modi Sunday hoisted the national flag at Red Fort commemorating the 75th anniversary of the Azad Hind Government, formed by revolutionary patriot Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.
This is for the first time an Indian prime minister is hoisting the national flag at Red Fort on the occasion of the formation day of Azad Hind Government.
Netaji’s Azad Hind Government was the first provisional government of Free India established in Singapore on October 21, 1943.
“Azad Hind government characterized the vision laid down by Subhas Chandra Bose for a powerful undivided India. Bose united Indians to fight against the British rule,” Modi said.
Modi also mentioned about the egalitarian viewpoint of Netaji while establishing the Indian National Army.

Why former Indian ambassador T P Sreenivasan has endorsed BJP’s Kummanam Rajasekharan
Shashi Tharoor’s record as a politician was a disappointment for me, says former Indian ambassador T P Sreenivasan
The political stand taken by former Indian ambassador and foreign policy expert T P Sreenivasan has become a hot point for debate in Kerala. And the reason, he has endorsed a candidate –and it’s not Shashi Tharoor of the Congress.
According to Sreenivasan BJP’s Kummanam Rajasekharan has all the qualities to represent his constituency Thiruvananthapuram in the Parliament. And, the former ambassador made it clear at Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s election rally in Thiruvananthapuram on Thursday.
“When I met Kummanam Rajasekharan, when he came to Ottappalam, as the Governor of Mizoram, to present the KPS Menon Award to me, I had told him that I would support him if he contested in Trivandrum. I liked his personality, particularly his simplicity and commitment and decided to support him at a personal level. Subsequently, he not only sought my support, but also asked me to lead his campaign. When he invited me to the public meeting of the PM, I attended and used the opportunity to indicate my support. As a private person, I have the freedom to make this choice. I have not joined any political party,” Sreenivasan stated on Facebook.
“As for Shashi Tharoor, I was one of those who felt that he would be an asset to Indian politics and worked actively for him in 2009. But his record as a politician was a disappointment for me,” he added.
The Indic view: We want a formal apology for Jallianwala Bagh massacre
India wants British Prime Minister Theresa May to make a formal apology for that dark day in Indian history, which killed hundreds of innocent Indians
Today is the 100th anniversary of Jallianwala Bagh massacre. Debates have been going on across political and social platforms, in India and the Britain, for the last few years, calling on the British Prime Minister Theresa May to make a formal apology for that dark day in Indian history, which killed more than 1000 innocent Indians.
But Theresa May seems to be satisfied with regret rather than an apology. That’s why she made a statement on Jallianwala Bagh massacre on April 10 in Parliament by saying she is deeply regretted about it, not really apologetic.
Time has passed. Britain has undergone fundamental changes as a nation and a responsible world power. When the world is at a crossroads now, in the midst of protectionism, globalism and expansionism, an apology gesture from the Britain will communicate a lot to the people in all countries who want to make this world a better place to live in.
Britain must apologise for Jallianwala Bagh massacre as many law-makers in the Britain itself call for it openly.
