Indian National Army

During the course of the Second World War, armed revolutionary activities continued to take place.

The role of Subhas Chandra Bose towards such activities is incomparable.

On 2 July 1943, Subhas Chandra Bose reached Singapore and gave the rousing war cry of ‘Dilli Chalo’.

He was made the President of Indian Independence League and soon became the supreme commander of the Indian National Army.

He gave the country the slogan of Jai Hind. The names of the INA’s three Brigades were the Subhas Brigade, Gandhi Brigade and Nehru Brigade.

The women’s wing ofthe army was named after Rani Laxmibai.

The Indian National Army marched towards Imphal after registering its victory over Kohima.

After Japan’s surrender in 1945, the INA failed in its efforts. Under such circumstances, Subhas went to Taiwan. Then on his way to Tokyo he died on 18 August 1945 in a plane crash.

The trial of the soldiers of INA was held at Red Fort in Delhi.

Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, Bhulabhai Desai and Tej Bahadur Sapru

fought the case on behalf of the soldiers.
