Subhas Chandia Bose, who conferred with Gen. Koiso, the Prime Minister of Japan
in Tokyo on November 4, declared that since the formation of the Indian
Provisional Government last year, the Indian people throughout Greater East
Asia had consistently worked to marshal all the available resources at their command
and to help the Japanese expedite the realisation of the common ideal. Now that
the war had already entered the most decisive phase, continued Mr Bose, the
Indians were redoubling their efforts so that the destruction of the enemy
might be brought about at the earliest date.
