Netaji's grandnephew Chandra Kumar Bose on 6 September resigned from the primary membership of the Bharatiya Janata Party.

Chandra Kumar Bose's resignation comes amid the political row over India vs. Bharat.

Tendering his resignation, Bose wrote, "I have chosen to take this critical step on a significant date for the Bose family which is the 134th birth anniversary of my grandfather Sarat Chandra Bose, the elder brother, mentor, and comrade-in-arms of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose. the Bose Brothers, Sarat, and Subhas Bose, as they are popularly called, stood for an inclusive and secular ideology for independent India."

Adding more, he wrote, "I had joined the BJP in 2016 inspired by the leadership and expansive development programme of Shri Narendra Modi ji. My discussions then centred on the inclusive ideology of the Bose Brothers. My understanding, both then and later, has been that I would propagate this ideology across the nation on a BJP platform. It was also decided to form an Azad Hind Morcha within the framework of BJP with the primary objective to propagate Nataji's ideology of uniting all communities as Bharatiyas, irrespective of religion, caste, and creed. This according to me is essential to keep our country united and for inclusive progress cutting across all communities."

Expressing his disappointment, Bose further noted, "My own ardent promotional efforts to achieve these laudable objectives have not received any support from the BJP, either at the Centre or at the state level in West Bengal. I had put forward a detailed proposal suggesting a Bengal Strategy to reach out to the people of Bengal. My proposals were ignored."

He added, “Given these unfortunate circumstances, it has become impossible for me to continue in all conscience as a member of the BJP."
