Why Indira Gandhi imposed ‘Emergency’?


June 25th is marked as the 44th anniversary of the Indira Gandhi-led government imposing a state of national emergency in India. This ‘Emergency’ period lasted for 19 months and is considered as one of the darkest chapters in India’s history and is also called as the ‘death of democracy’. It has also been termed the perfect insignia of authoritarian government policies. Those 19 months, were often referred to as a period of hostility against democracy and civic rights, not only rendered all fundamental rights vulnerable but also endangered the freedom of socialists and writers. It completely clamped down the constitution of our country. But how it all started? #Emergency #IndiraGandhi #NarendraModi
