‘Declare Subhash Bose’s birthday on 23 Jan as Desh Prem Divas’

New Delhi: A to declare 23 January, the birth anniversary of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, as ‘Desh Prem Divas’ (Patriotism Day) and a national holiday, was made in the Rajya Sabha today.

Raising the issue through a Zero Hour mention, Ritabrata Banerjee, who was recently expelled from the CPI(M), narrated the heroic tales of Bose who had made a daring escape from house arrest by the British rulers in Calcutta and made his way to Germany via Afghanistan and then on to Japan in a German submarine.

He demanded that the government declare 23 January as ‘Patriotism Day’ and a national holiday as a fitting tribute to “the forgotten hero” of the Indian struggle.

Rajya Sabha Chairman hoped the government will take of the suggestion but went on to add that members should not be seen asking for holidays.

It is the sentiment behind seeking the declaration of the day as Desh Prem Divas, which should be acknowledged, he said.
