The Chief Minister made the proposition addressing a gathering after participating in a road show to mark the 125 th birth anniversary celebration of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose.

"During the British-era, Kolkata was the capital of the country".

"I think the government programme should have some dignity". And the sessions of Parliament should be held in different places in the country. She said that this year's Republic Day parade in the state will be dedicated to Netaji. Bose was born on this day in 1897.

"What is the meaning of "Parakram"?" They should at least consult me or Sougata Bose or any other, about which word to use. Talking about the ongoing Covid-19 vaccination drive in the country, the Prime Minister reinstated the need to take precautions and also asked the people to get two complete doses of the vaccination when their turn arrives. The country has chose to celebrate this day as "Prakram Diwas".

She explained that Rabindranath Tagore addressed Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose "Desh Nayak". "We want a united India", she added.

PM Modi said that Netaji Subhas, along with the dream of AatmaNirbhar Bharat, is the biggest inspiration of Sonar Bangla also. "We are celebrating his 125th birth anniversary in a grand fashion", she said.

Ms Banerjee called for a change in attitude towards the States. A compilation of letters written by Subhas Chandra Bose from 1926 to 1936 will be released in his presence.

"Why was the national Planning Commission, which was conceptualised by Netaji in independent India, dissolved? Why the demand for a holiday on Netaji's birthday by our government not yet met?" Elaborate security arrangements have been made in view of the Prime Minister's visit and the Chief Minister's rally in Kolkata to pay homage to Netaji. "We demand the National Planning Commission must be brought back", claimed Bannerjee. There have been brutal layoffs and pay-cuts.

But the news media is in a crisis of its own. The best of journalism is shrinking, yielding to crude prime-time spectacle.
