'Truth suppressed in history'

'Truth suppressed in history'

Speaking at the 113th birth anniversary celebration of Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose at Government College of Education here on Saturday, Rajashekar said that inequality still pervades Indian society solely on account of suppressing the “true facts” of the freedom struggle.

“The principles and values for which Netaji stood, his contribution for the freedom struggle and the non-cooperation by the then leaders of Indian National Congress have not been documented in the history,” he remarked.

Revolt against Capitalism

People will revolt against capitalists if they seriously study Subhash Chandra Bose, Bhagat Singh and Chandrashekhar Azad and there will be revolution in every field of activity.

Fearing backlash, history has been manipulated by brushing the hard facts under the carpet. People who were not ready to compromise with the circumstances during the freedom struggle were branded extremists.

“This is the appellation that the then Congress leaders bestowed upon non-compromising freedom fighters,” Rajashekhar lamented. He said that the present generation should study the life and accomplishments of Subhash Chandra Bose to herald equality in the society.

Principal Ajit Prasad, educationist Prof Kodi Rangappa, Prof N Shivarama Reddy and others were present.
