He informed that the signature campaign will start in Manipur from INA, Moirang, from February 1, demanding removal of war criminal tag from Netaji Subhash Chandra Bose name from all international organisations, including Commonwealth nations and United Nations.
The collected signatures will be submitted to the Indian Government and other related international organisations, he added.
