Emergency ‘darkest chapter’ of India’s democracy: BJP

Wednesday, 26 June 2019 | Staff Reporter | RAIPUR

Chhattisgarh BJP state president Vikram Usendi on Tuesday on the occasion of 44th anniversary of the Emergency imposed by the Congress government headed by Indira Gandhi termed it as the darkest chapter in the history of Indian democracy.

The BJP president recalled that after the emergency was imposed by the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in the country on June 25, 1975 the democratic rights and constitutional protection were put to an end.

It is the duty of those having faith in democracy to tell the new generation about the atrocities committed during the period, so that such a chapter is never repeated in the country in future.

Usendi said it was second freedom movement in country and after the emergency ended in 1977, a bloodless revolution took place through election. Several people lost their lives and their families are still undergoing the pain so Maintenance of Internal Security Act (MISA) detainees should be given status of freedom fighters, he said.

Attacking the state government for its approach towards the MISA detainees, the BJP president said both Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh governments have once again shown their undemocratic character by withdrawing the facilities extended to them.

It is reported that BJP state governments’ had provided pension and other facilities at par with freedom fighters to the detainees, but the Congress governments had withdrawn it.
