PM Modi’s visit to Andamans: Three islands in Andaman and Nicobar renamed after Netaji Subash Chandra Bose

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on December 30, 2018 renamed three islands of Andaman and Nicobar after Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose. These three islands are – Ross Island, Neil Island and Havelock Island.

These islands were renamed during PM Modi’s visit to Port Blair to mark the 75th Anniversary of hoisting of the National Flag at Port Blair by freedom fighter Subhash Chandra Bose.

Bose had hoisted the flag at Port Blair on December 30, 1943, as he believed that Port Blair was the first territory to be freed from British rule. This was done after the Japenese captured that area during the time of the Second World War.
