Three Islands And New Names Are:

After the Japanese captured the Andaman Island during the time of the Second World War, Netaji had hoisted the flag at Port Blair on 30th December 1943. This was because he believed that Port Blair was the first territory to be freed from British rule. Netaji had even suggested way back that the Andaman and Nicobar Islands be renamed as Shahid and Swaraj Dweep.
