new Delhi. BJP President JP Nadda on Thursday targeted the Congress on the completion of 45 years of Emergency imposed on the country and termed it as a symbol of its totalitarian mindset.
In a tweet, Nadda said, “India salutes all those great personalities who, despite enduring torture, vehemently oppose the Emergency.” It was the tenacity of our satyagrahis that India’s democratic values successfully won over a totalitarian mindset.
It is noteworthy that the Emergency remained in force in the country for a period of 21 months from 25 June 1975 to 21 March 1977. Indira Gandhi was the Prime Minister of the country at that time.
Along with this, Nadda also shared a post titled ‘Black Chapter of Emergency’ on Twitter. In it, he said “In order to fulfill the vested political interests in 1975, the then government declared a state of emergency and those who spoke against the government were put in jail, snatching the fundamental rights of the countrymen and locking the offices of newspapers. Had gone.’
He said, “On the anniversary of the shameful emergency imposed by the Congress, I bow to all the national devotees who have not succumbed to those who killed democracy despite enduring injustice and torture
