The central government has prepared a plan to promote the places associated with Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose through travel programs across the country as part of the programs organized on the anniversary of the formation of the Azad Hind government. Officials of the Ministry of Tourism gave this information. On 21 October 1943, Bose announced the formation of the Provisional Government of Azad Hind in Singapore. He started the struggle to free India from British rule after the Second World War under the Provisional Government-in-Exile.

The central government’s move to promote Bose-related sites in India is the first of its kind at the national level. An official said, “Such sites have been identified. We have prepared custom itineraries, which include destinations associated with Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. Itinerary will be given to tour operators to promote places related to Netaji.

Some of the sites will be covered under the Buddhist circuit being developed by the tourism ministry in collaboration with various central ministries and the Bihar and Uttar Pradesh governments, the official said. The itinerary includes the Martyrs Memorial in Meerut on the Delhi-Meerut-Dalhousie-Delhi-Surat road, the Kinance Building in Dalhousie, where Netaji spent about 7 months. Surat includes Haripura, where he was elected president of the INA.

The second is the Kolkata-Nagaland-Manipur route. This would include a visit to the village of Raujajo, which Netaji had liberated during his campaign against the British in 1944 and made the INA’s operational base. Apart from this, tourism will be promoted at various places associated with Netaji.
