Lal Bahadur Shastri’s son, Anil Shastri appealed the NDA government to declassify all documents related to his father’s death and “clear the air once and for all” around the circumstances of his passing away in 1966.
Vivek Agnihotri’s “The Tashkent Files” dated to release on 12th of April. Based on the sensitive topic of Lal Bahadur Shastri’s mysterious death in Tashkent after signing the Tashkent Agreement, the film promises to reveal many political secrets unveiling the biggest cover-up of Indian Politics.
Anil Shastri, the son of former PM, and a Congress leader says ” We want all documents pertaining to Shastriji’s death to be declassified. Many things have been said about the way he died, even yesterday a young man walked to me at Delhi airport and asked me how my father had died. Family members and common public still have suspicion because the circumstances in which Shastriji died were uncommon”
He claimed, “When BJP was in opposition, one of their major demands was that the documents related to Shastriji’s death to be declassified. Today, I am not asking as a politician, but as a son. They have been in power for past four years, yet they have not done so. Although files related to Subhash Chandra Bose were recently declassified. If the prime minister can take a decision on this and release the findings of the Raj Narain committee report and declassify documents related to Shastriji’s death, I think once and for all, it would clear the air.” He had written a letter to Prime Minister Narendra Modi on this a year back, stating, “there is doubt in people’s mind surrounding Shastriji’s death and the only way to clear it is to declassify the documents.”
He added “The findings of the Raj Narain Committee, constituted in 1977 to look into the mysterious death of then prime minister Shastri, should also be made public”.
“My father had high risk-taking ability and he demonstrated it during the 1965 war with Pakistan, he would not sit at home. He would travel and address Jawans at the border and keep motivating them. My father was a man of peace and never wanted war, but at the same time he felt any aggressor had to be paid back in the same coin. He had the courage of a general and the compassion of a saint,”
