    The Jawaharlal Nehru government had placed the family and relatives of Subhas Chandra Bose on surveillance for two decades, Times Now reported quoting de-classified intelligence reports.

    The files reveal that the Intelligence Bureau had resumed British-era surveillance on the two Bose family homes in Calcutta at Woodburn Park and Elgin Road.

    Two recently declassified IB files have revealed that the Nehru-led Congress government spied on Netaji’s kin between 1948 and 1968.

    Reacting to reports, the family of Subhas Chandra Bose sought full declassification of files that revealed that the Nerhu government had placed Bose family under surveillance.

    However, taking the line adopted by the previous Congress-led UPA government, Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Office has already refused to disclose records related to Subhas Chandra Bose’s death as it rejected the argument that there was a larger public interest involved in making them public.

    Congress plays down IB report

    The Congress Party on Friday downplayed the alleged Intelligence Bureau declassified report which states that former prime minister Jawaharlal Nehru had ordered a surveillance on freedom fighter Subhas Chandra Bose’s family, adding that the two leaders had shared an ‘excellent personal rapport’.

    “This is a story made by the media and it is not a fair assessment of the history. Pandit ji [Nehru] and Subhas Chandra Bose enjoyed an excellent personal rapport in spite of all the differences. The difference was only about the strategy to attain independence. [Nehru] was of the view that it should be attained through peaceful means, while Subhas Chandra Bose had a different viewpoint on this issue,” Congress leader PC Chacko said.

    Meanwhile, Congress general secretary Digvijay Singh condemned the allegations, claiming that it was an attempt to defame the Nehru-Gandhi family.

    “All this is bound to happen as BJP and the Sangh Parivar are against the Nehru-Gandhi family because Nehruji was always against their ideology of dividing Hindus and Muslims. They must reveal the source of such news. I condemn such reports,” Singh said.

    BJP dismayed

    The BJP on Friday expressed its dismay over the alleged declassification of an Intelligence Bureau report which stated that former Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru had ordered a surveillance of the family of freedom fighter Subhas Chandra Bose, and maintained that the Congress Party has had a ‘murky past’.

    “If you see the history of the Congress Party, then, you will see darkness everywhere. There are lots of hidden things about them. Lot of such things come out about them (Congress) and most of them are true,” minister of state for minority affairs Mukhtar Abbas Naqvi said.

    Nehru wanted to rule India and start a clan no matter what the cost,
    Why else a leader who is supposed to be democratic order spying on another leaders family, does not make sense, does it?
    Nehru felt that if Bose returned back, he was more popular than Nehru, there is good chance that he would lose out to Bose.

    Just think if Bose was the prime minister of India for ten years. Such a pragmatic leader would have propelled India on the right path. I feel sad for this unsung hero.

    Maybe even took down Gandhi? Gandhi did want the Congress party to be disbanded after Freedom

    I'm someone who believes that British and Congress let happen the assasination of Gandhi. There were many attempts to assisasinate gandhi, but they all failed, because gandhi was important to both the British and Congress agendas. But after independance, Gndhi could've inspired to reunite Bharat. And Gandhi also posed a threat to Congress and Nehru (he spoke against Congress and Nehru, thereby making him an enemy of both). Congress and british had to gain from his assasination. So they let it happen. This is what I believe.

    THE HISTORY BOOKS,
    Was "chacha" Nehru the real image or just the image that was created to ensure that his family becomes the dynasty? If Bose was was back, Nehru would look very much like his Great Grandson RG .
    And considering that Nehru wanted to give up Siachen because nothing grows there and that he did give up the UNSC seat that we are now chasing shows that he did not have the vision to be the leader of India, all he wanted to be the ruler of India and his family after him
