On 46th anniversary of Emergency, Amit Shah hits out at Congress

Shah said Congress killed the world’s largest democracy by imposing an Emergency.

Union Home Minister Amit Shah attacked the Congress on the 46th anniversary of the Emergency, saying it was imposed to silence people who had raised their voice against one family and termed it a dark chapter in the history of independent India.

 

Taking to Twitter, Shah said: “Emergency imposed to quell the voices against one family is a dark chapter in the history of independent India. Salute to the sacrifice of all the countrymen who fought relentlessly for the protection of the Constitution and democracy of the country while suffering the brutal tortures of the ruthless rule for 21 months.”

 

Shah further said that in the selfishness and arrogance of power, Congress killed the world’s largest democracy by imposing an Emergency on the country.

 

Salute to the sacrifice of all the countrymen who fought relentlessly for the protection of the Constitution and democracy of the country while suffering the brutal tortures of the ruthless rule for 21 months, he added.

 

Declared for a 21-month period from 1975 to 1977 by the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi, the Emergency was one of the most controversial periods of India’s history post-independence.
