On 75th anniversary of Azad Hind govt, PM to hoist national flag at Red Fort

need be recalled that the Azad Hind government was raised by Netaji during the freedom movement

Prime Minister Narendra Modi is all set to hoist the national flag at the Red Fort in New Delhi on Sunday.

This is to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Azad Hind government formed by freedom fighter Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.

It need be recalled that the Azad Hind government was raised by Netaji during the freedom movement.

But the decision to hoist the national flag at the Red Fort has reportedly been taken because it was the same place where soldiers of the Indian National Army (Azad Hind Fauj) faced trials by the British.

With this, the Prime Minister and BJP will effectively have staked claim to the legacy of Netaji after doing so for BR Ambedkar and Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel.

Traditionally, the prime minister hoists the national tricolour at the historic Red Fort on Independence Day on August 15.

The Prime Minister will also lay the foundation stone of a museum dedicated to the Azad Hind Fauj.
