3 Andaman isles get new names; Ross is Bose island

New Delhi:

The Centre has decided to rename islands in Andaman & Nicobar Ross Island as Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose Island, Neil Island as Shahid Dweep and Havelock Island as Swaraj Dweep coinciding with the 75th anniversary of Bose hoisting the national flag in Port Blair.

Formalities have been completed and the new names will be announced by PM Modi during his visit to Port Blair on December 30, where he will hoist a 150-metre flag and release a commemorative stamp and coin.

After the Japanese captured the island during World War II, Bose, who led the Indian National Army, hoisted the national flag in Port Blair on December 30, 1943. He then suggested that Andaman be renamed as Shahid Dweep and Nicobar as Swaraj Dweep. TNN
