New Delhi: The Prime Minister's Office (PMO), it seems, is working overtime to get a wind of issues and concerns Bose family may raise during their meet with PM Narendra Modi on October 14 in national capital.

According to a report published in Economic Times, the PMO has called 7 times the family members of Bose in last 8 days to know the details of the issues they have planned to discuss with Modi.

Chandra Bose, grandnephew of Netaji Subhas Bose, said that PMO has asked them to prepare and send a probable agenda for the meeting, besides the list of the people willing to attend the meeting.

Chandra further said that the government may call National Security Adviser (NSA) and Union Home Secretary to the meeting and this why the PMO is seeking so many details.

He said that around 35 members from the family and 14 researchers and scholars would be attending the meeting.

"The PMO appears to be quite active this time. And they are cooperating with us too. We were asked to send an agenda. And they told us that they would call the concerned people to address the issues immediately. They might call the National Security Adviser and Union Home Secretary too in the meeting. It seems that the Prime Minister is also serious this time," Chandra was quoted as saying in the report.

The West Bengal government recently declassified 64 secret files relating to Bose that could help throw light on his mysterious disappearance.

The state government has also the Centre to follow suit and fulfil a long-standing demand of the country.
