Declassified files of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose were displayed at the National Archives of India in Delhi on the 119th birth anniversary of the freedom fighter on Saturday. Some of Bose's family members who were present reportedly got emotional on seeing the files.  

Prime Minister Narendra Modi released 100 digital files pertaining to Netaji on Saturday, which will be available on the specially designed website.

On Saturday morning, Modi shared on Twitter a proclamation made by Netaji Bose in 1944 to fight till India was "completely liberated".

"Remembering Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose on his birth anniversary. His bravery & patriotism endears him to several Indians across generations," Modi tweeted. 

Modi had announced last October that his government was set to declassify the files during his meeting with some family members of the freedom fighter. 

The National Archives of India will release digital copies of 25 declassified files on Netaji in the public domain every month, the Culture Ministry said in a press release
