Unnao (Uttar Pradesh) [India], January 24 (ANI): Soon after alleging that the Congress was responsible for Subhas Chandra Bose's death, Bharatiya Janata Party Member of Parliament from Uttar Pradesh's Unnao, Sakshi Maharaj on Sunday said that it was just his kayaas (assumption).

BJP MP on Saturday had alleged that the Congress party was linked to the killing of Subhas Chandra Bose.

While addressing a public rally in Unnao, he said, "My allegation is that Congress got Subhas Chandra Bose killed....neither Mahatma Gandhi nor Pandit Nehru could stand in front of his popularity."

A day after, speaking to the media, the BJP leader said, "My statement has nothing to do with the party it was just my kayaas (assumption). Maybe it would be not true, but this is what I believe."

"Subhas Chandra Bose played a major role in India's freedom struggle. Why is his death still a mystery? Why did Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru not conduct any enquiry? The truth about his death must come out. Pandit Nehru was nowhere in comparison to the popularity of Netaji," he added,

BJP MP further said that be it Shyama Prasad Mukherjee, Lal Bahadur Shastri or Subhas Chandra Bose mystery behind their death should be revealed.

Born to advocate Janakinath Bose in Odisha's Cuttack on January 23, 1897, Netaji went on to play a crucial role in India's freedom movement. He is also known for establishing the Azad Hind Fauj.

While there is controversy over Bose's death in a plane crash in Taipei on August 18, 1945, the Central government had in a (Right to Information Act) RTI in 2017 confirmed that he had died in the incident. (ANI)
