“We call upon every India to destroy the Anglo-American war effort in India by systematic sabotage and thereby hasten the successful conclusion of war of our country’s freedom. Sisters and brothers of India. This is a golden opportunity for you to fulfil your long cherished aspirations for freedom. If you rise to the occasion and do your duty, freedom will be yours before long. In this momentous crisis, India expects everyone to do his or her duty.”PM Modi made the proclamation public via his Twitter account @narendramodi and also remembered Netaji on his birth anniversary. He said:
He then went on to share the picture of Netaji’s proclamation and added that it was a special day for all Indians and that he will himself visit the National Archives for the declassification of the files.
