Deshbandhu's reaction to Subhas's arrest

"If Subhas Chandra Bose is a criminal, I am a criminal, if Subhas Chandra Bose is a revolutionary, I am a revolutionary. Why have they not arrested me? I should like to know why, why? If love of country is a crime, I am a criminal. Not only the Chief Executive Officer of this corporation but the Mayor of the Corporation is equally guilty. I plead guilty to the charge. If that is a crime, I am ready to be hanged for it, rather than shirk the duty which I feel to be the duty of every Indian today." This is how Deshbandhu Chittaranjan Das thundered in a conference in Calcutta Corporation on 29th October 1924, when he heard the news of Subhas's arrest under notorious Regulation 3 of 1818, 4 days back.
