PPFA welcomes renaming of Andaman island after Netaji

Patriotic People’s Front Assam (PPFA) welcomes renaming of three Andaman & Nicobar islands after legendary freedom fighter Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose along with his magnificent legacy and it expresses happiness that the Patriot of Patriots has been duly honoured on 75th anniversary of Netaji’s declaration of the formation of Azad Hind government.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi in his recent visit to Port Blair renamed the Ross island as Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose Dweep, Neil island as Shaheed Dweep and Havelock island as Swaraj Dweep. He also hoisted the 150-feet national flag at South Point of Port Blair, where Netaji Bose unfurled the Tricolour in 1943 as the head of provisional government of Azad Hind declaring the islands free from the colonial British forces.

“We take the privilege to salute the supreme commander of Azad Hind Fouj (Indian National Army) and convincingly believe that every patriotic Indian would pay splendid tributes to Netaji as the first Prime Minister of undivided India,” said a PPFA statement adding that no conspiracy could erase the legacy of Netaji and his magnificent valiant brigade.
