Bihar chief minister Nitish Kumar on Saturday accused BJP of having an ulterior motive behind declassification of files related to Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose, saying it wants “conflict” between different streams of ideology during the freedom struggle to come to the fore.
“BJP, which has nothing to do with the struggle for Independence, by declassifying files related to Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose is basically making an effort to create conflict between different streams of ideology in the struggle for country’s Independence,” Kumar told reporters here.
He said freedom fighters fought against the Britishers with different ideologies.
“Mahatma Gandhi, the nayak (hero) of the freedom movement, and his followers fought against the British rule with the ideology of non-violence, while Netaji’s stream was radical. But, all the freedom movement heroes had one aim to get the country free from British atrocities,” Kumar said.
