Bengaluru, Jan. 23: The statue of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose which was shifted elsewhere due to Namma Metro work will be re-installed in front of Vidhana Soudha and an order will be issued in this regard immediately, said Chief Minister Basavaraj Bommai.
Speaking after offering floral tributes to Netaji on his birth anniversary here on Monday, he said they have vowed to build the nation on this auspicious occasion. The great freedom fighter had said there must not be weak thinking when it comes to patriotism, saving the nation and building the country. He had a clear aim and clarity and had proposed to wage a direct war against the Britishers in front of the great Congress leaders who were at the forefront of the freedom struggle. Despite different thinking, he contested against the Congress official candidate and won the election.
Ignited freedom struggle
Bommai said Netaji was a supreme patriot and he rejected the IAS post and plunged into the freedom struggle. “Give your blood, and I will get you freedom”, he had told youths. Netaji started his own army “Azad Fouj” and ignited the freedom struggle across the country. His personality made the westerners have positive thinking about India’s freedom. At that time Netaji was an inspiration for the freedom struggle and now he is an inspiration to build the nation. We must build the nation by drawing inspiration from him.
