Unlike Nehru, Hitler never betrayed his own nation! Reveals Netaji’s Grandnephew Chandra Kumar Bose

On Saturday, Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose’s grandnephew and BJP Bengal leader Chandra Kumar Bose appeared to compare India’s first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru with Adolf Hitler.

Calling Hitler ‘a nationalist who never betrayed his nation’, he compared him to Nehru saying that the latter wanted to ‘sit on the throne without fighting but sucking up to the British leaders’.

He tweeted “Well Hitler was a nationalist who’s intention was to conquer Europe- but he never betrayed his nation. Nehru wanted to sit on the throne without fighting- but sucking up to the British. In short Nehru betrayed his nation”

When his tweet sparked controversy he cleared that in any way he is not supporting Hitler but one thing that he wants to throw light upon is that the German dictator was not a fraud like pseudo-nationalist Nehru, who “wined and dined” with the British even though they massacred millions of Indians during their 200-year rule. “I’m not supporting Hitler -of course he was a devil- but he was not fraudulent like Nehru – who in the guise of being a nationalist was actually a British lackey. The British tortured & killed millions of Indians over a period of 200 years-but Nehru wined & dined with them!,” the grandnephew of the freedom fighter said.

Chandra Kumar Bose, the grandnephew of the legendary freedom fighter, was handpicked by BJP to contest against West Bengal CM Mamata Banerjee in the Bhawanipur constituency during the 2016 West Bengal Assembly elections.

Speaking to a TV channel, he had said: “I am here to stay. I have not come here to fight the elections. You see somebody has to lose. I started my work for the people of West Bengal. I think West Bengal has been neglected for 39 years, by the Left for 35 years and there’s just been a change in the name in the 2011 Assembly Elections. There has been no basic change in governance. Bengal has the right to good governance.”

Bose had come a distant third, garnering only 26,299 votes as Banerjee swept the constituency with 65, 520 votes. The BJP won only 3 seats while TMC won a total of 2011.

Earlier, Chandra has gone on record to say that the BJP’s ideology was similar to that of his grand-uncle’s, and that the Congress had tried to erase Netaji’s ideals. He believes that BJP is bringing back ‘economic, political and social freedom’ to national politics, and says that was his main reason he chose to join the party.

He had said: “Subhash Chandra Bose was a nationalist. He played the role of a nationalist during India’s freedom movement. He also spoke about India’s socialism. So,  I think Bharatiya Janata Party is not so different from it. Also, any ideology always keeps changing. Netaji believed in modern science, he believed in development, his views were inclusive, and all these ideals are today with the BJP,” Bose said.

In the past he has hit out at Nehru for allegedly keeping tabs on Netaji’s family. He wrote on The Daily O: “Why was Nehru so interested in Amiya Nath Bose’s activities in Japan? To me it appears as if the Nehru government was aware that Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose did not die in an air crash on August 18, 1945. Nehru may have thought if Amiya Nath Bose’s activities could be tracked, they may get to know Netaji’s movements, as Amiya was one of the closest nephews of Subhash. My father Amiya Nath Bose did suspect that some kind of snooping was being conducted by the Nehru Congress government, but he never could imagine its sheer magnitude.”
