Modi urged not to visit Renkoji temple

The Punjab-based Netaji Subhash Kranti Manch on Sunday urged Prime Minister Narendra Modi not to visit the Renkoji temple in Tokyo where some believe that the ashes of the late freedom-fighter Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose are buried.

In a statement here, the Manch observed that if Mr. Modi chose to visit the temple as was reported in a section of the media, it would send wrong signals about the “attitude and intentions” of his government towards Netaji.

The Mukherjee Commission of enquiry appointed by the Atal Bihari Vajpayee–led NDA government, which had concluded that the “ashes in the Japanese temple are not Netaji’s”, was supported by the BJP even as the UPA government had rejected its findings. Urging Mr. Modi to accept the panel’s report and use his good offices to unravel Netaji’s fate, the Manch said the nation had a right to know what happened to the legendary hero.
