“We are committed to fulfilling his ideals and creating a strong India,” Modi said.

A number of others also took to Twitter to commemorate Netaji’s birth on this day in 1897 in Odisha’s Cuttack district.

The Congress party remembered him as “a true nationalist, a defiant patriot”.

“Bose was one of India’s greatest freedom fighters. He will always be remembered for his role in building the Indian National Army and serving the Congress party as one its strongest presidents,” the Congress tweeted.

Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) President Amit Shah tweeted in Hindi saying that Bose “raised a sustained campaign against British rule”.

Union Home Minister Rajnath Singh said the veteran freedom fighter “ignited patriotism among the people and inspired them to sacrifice everything for the freedom of the motherland.

“He is an icon of India’s freedom movement and also a role model for today’s youth”.

Rajasthan Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot said Bose’s “valour, patriotism and leadership would always be an inspiration for generations to come”.

“Netaji Subhas Bose gave us the memorable motto of the Azad Hind Fauj: ‘Ittehad, Itmad, Qurbani’ (Unity, Trust, Sacrifice). The patriotic call of ‘Jai Hind’ unites us all till date,” said Communist Party of India-Marxist General Secretary Sitaram Yechury.

To fight the British, Bose had formed the Indian National Army (INA) that was also known as the Azad Hind Fauj.

“We were humbled by the accelerated adoption of the Zoom platform around the globe in Q1. The COVID-19 crisis has driven higher demand for distributed, face-to-face interactions and collaboration using Zoom. Use cases have grown rapidly as people integrated Zoom into their work, learning, and personal lives,” said Eric S. Yuan, Founder and CEO of Zoom.

While Zoom saw its popularity soaring in the last three months, governments and law enforcement agencies also sought clarification from the video meet app over data hoarding and cyber hoarding, along with issues of unauthorised access termed as “zoom-bombing”.

After the Supreme Court in India sought the response of the Central government over a petition seeking a ban on Zoom, the video calling app claimed that it “takes user privacy, security, and trust extremely seriously.”

“Zoom takes user privacy, security and trust extremely seriously. We have been focused on enhancing our commitment to security and privacy under our 90-day plan announced on April 1, and have made significant progress,” the company said in a statement.

“Our primary grants in Q1 were toward organisations making a difference during COVID-19,” said Yuan.

Zoom growth has led to several tech giants ramping up their video conferencing services like Microsoft Teams, Google Meet and Facebook Messenger Rooms, among others.

Zoom recently announced that it will expand its engineering team with up to 500 new headcount based in Phoenix, Arizona and Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, in the US.
