Forward Bloc demands Aajad Hind Fauj memorial at Red Fort

The All India Forward Bloc on Tuesday demanded the Central government to construct a memorial for Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s Aajad Hind Fauj at the Red Fort in Delhi. Speaking to reporters after a party convention in Jalpaiguri, Forward Bloc national general secretary Devvrat Biswas said the jawans of Aajad Hind Fauj gave up their lives for India’s freedom. “Many AHF officers were tried at a British court and sentenced to death. The sacrifice of these brave hearts should be honoured by erecting a memorial at the Red Fort premises,” he stressed. The party convention that was organised by the Uttar Banga Ananya Andolan Samnavya Committee at the Ravindra Bhavan also saw Forward Bloc leaders firming up to demand a circuit bench and an AIIMS-like facility in the district. They also decided to protest against the state government’s plan to include some areas of Jalpaiguri into Siliguri. The meeting was addressed by Forward Bloc leaders Govind Rai, Udyan Guwa and Paresh Adhikari among others. (HS)
