The grandson of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose has urged all political leaders to stop divisive politics and follow the leader’s ideology.
Chandra Kumar Bose talking to media men in New Delhi, said the government should think beyond the statue and adopt Netaji’s ideology as he believed in but even after 75 years, questions are being raised on the unity of the country.
“We should stop communal and divisive politics, because maybe we can win elections with that but will lose the nation. When country will not exist, what good is of winning polls,” he asked
He said: “The time has come to use Netaji’s ideals in national politics. If we do not, the partition will happen again and we do not want to see 1947 again.”
Bose said, “Common man does not want division in society. Everyone wants to live united. I urge all political parties to stop divisive politics and follow Netaji’s ideals, failing which the country may see another partition in the next 50 to 100 years, and the future generations will be unable to see undivided India.”
“We should stop communal and divisive politics, because maybe we can win elections with that but will lose the nation. When country will not exist, what good is of winning polls,” he asked.
When asked why he thinks the country will face another partition in 50 to 100 years, he said: “Bengal, Northeast, Kerala and Tamil Nadu may be separated, then you stay with Uttar Pradesh. Divide and rule policy of Britishers is still continuing. The state and central governments are also being run on divisive lines. Elections in Uttar Pradesh are being held on caste lines, but Netaji ended caste system. We all are one.”
On being asked why he is raising questions at the BJP-led government, as he has been a part of it, he said: “I don’t like politics of the BJP, I follow Netaji’s ideology and do not compromise on it. I joined the BJP because I was told that Netaji’s ideology will be spread, but it has not happened. If they will tell me that it will not happen, I will leave the party.”
