"Wishing all the countrymen a very Happy Parakram Diwas. My respectful tributes to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose on his 125th birth anniversary. I bow to Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose on his Jayanti. Every Indian is proud of his monumental contribution to our nation," PM Modi said in a tweet.

Later in the day, Prime Minister Modi will also unveil a hologram statue of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose at the India Gate.

Paying tribute to Netaji, Union Home Minister Amit Shah said that his unparalleled sacrifice, tenacity and struggle for the motherland will always guide the country.

Taking to Twitter Shah said, "I bow to the great leader of independence Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose on his birth anniversary. He shook the foundation of foreign rule by organizing the youth with his extraordinary patriotism, indomitable courage and stunning speech."
