Mr SC Bose said in the course of a Press interview on Friday that his confidence in the early realisation of India's emancipation stood as firm as ever. Here is a resume of what he said: “The fall of Kohima is bound to have far-reaching effect on all India, to say nothing of the success of the Indian National Army on the Brahmaputra plain. With the fall of Imphal, which will inevitably follow that of Kohima, the Indians will, for the first time in their history, have their own free government in their homeland. As to the administrative policy of the Provisional Government, every effort will be made to avoid governmental delays and to help the people to live a life of comfort. The aim of the Provisional Government is to liberate the Indian masses. This is in striking contrast to the British way of sacrificing our manpower and using our resources for their own gain. The Provisional Government is a people's government and will function only as long as a stable government is not established.”
