Addressing a programme organized by the BJP in Mumbai, he said India remembers the Emergency as a dark period during which every institution was subverted and an atmosphere of fear was created. Prime Minister Modi’s message on was a positive one.
Never forget those dark days of emergency so that you can re-dedicate yourself to protecting the Constitution and democracy.
He hit out at the Congress party for using the impeachment motion to shackle the judiciary in the same manner as Indira Gandhi had done in 1975.
Prime Minister stressed on the BJP’s commitment to upholding the Constitution.
He said that it was his government that began the celebration of Constitution Day on 26th November.
He contrasted this with what he called the Congress party’s self and family serving politics.
He said that ‘Emergency’ was a classic example of how the ‘Constitution of India’ could be abused to fulfill the wishes of ‘one family’.
He accused the Congress of creating a false atmosphere of fear for selfish reasons.
All in all, Prime Minister Narendra Modi reiterated his commitment to upholding democracy and the constitution in letter and spirit.
