India should have 4 capitals by rotation: Mamata

West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee today suggested that a vast country like India should have four capitals on a rotation basis.

"I believe India must have four capitals by rotation. The English ruled the entire country from Kolkata. Why should there be only one capital city in our country?" said Mamata Banerjee while addressing a function to pay homage to freedom fighter Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose on his birth anniversary.

Mamata also said sessions of national parliament should be held in different places in the country. "We will have to change our concept," she added while addressing the function after participating in a road march in Kolkata to pay tribute to Netaji.

She alleged a "game" was going on to change the country's national anthem "Jana Gana Mana", reports our New Delhi correspondent.

"There is a game going on to change our national anthem. Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose had endorsed 'Jana Gana Mana' as the national anthem. We will not allow to change it," Mamata said.

Earlier, Mamata took to Twitter to announce that a monument, named after Azad Hind Fauj founded by Netaji, will be built in Rajarhat in Kolkata and a state-funded university, which is also being set up, will be dedicated to Netaji.
