A grand statue of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose will come up at the India Gate, New Delhi as a symbol of national gratitude to the leader. Subash Chandra Bose was an Indian freedom fighter and one of the causes of Indian freedom. He was known as Netaji. He was the President of the Indian National Congress from 1938 to 1939. He attempted to get rid of British rule in India during World War II. The decision, albeit late, to install an imposing statue of one of the greatest freedom fighters of India, Netaji Bose on his 125th birth anniversary is a fitting tribute to his struggle and sacrifice of thousands of Indians under his leadership. Jai Hind!
