New Delhi: A day after Karnataka assembly result, when both the BJP and the Congress-JD(S) have been claiming their first right to form the government and the later is blaming the Centre to misuse its power in its favour, Congress under the leadership of its new president Rahul Gandhi has justified the imposition of ‘Emergency’ and its atrocities.
In a TV news debate programme – Do Touk – aired on DD News on Wednesday evening, Congress spokesperson Alok Sharma justified and defended the Emergency. When senior BJP leader Amitabh Sinha raised the issue of imposition of dictatorship during the Emergency in 1975 under Indira Gandhi, Sharma said Emergency was imposed as section of  journalists were indulged in creating havoc.
The ‘Emergency’ was imposed on the mid night of 25 June 1975 by then Prime Minister Late Indira Gandhi. In that era, all the constitutional bodies including the media houses were pressurised to bow down before the government. Also the entire Opposition was put behind the bars and media houses were pressurised to crawl before the government. It is still considered blackish part on post Independent India.
Interestingly, reacting on Sharma’s justification of Emergency, With utter surprise and shock, Sinha told the news anchor Ashok Srivastava that it was breaking news for him also as Congress was justifying Emergency and its atrocities.
It all started after Amitabh Sinha, also a senior advocate at Supreme Court, said that Congress has no right to make an allegation against the BJP as they have been indulged in misusing of office since Independence. Citing an example, Sinha said that first time in 1962, then PM Nehru with the help of her daughter Indira Gandhi broke the constitutional propriety and dismissed the duly elected government of Kerala. Indira Gandhi and Rajeev Gandhi carried forward this unholy practice of dismissing constitutionally elected governments at will.
Intervening Amitabh Sinha, Alok Sharma said that but the practice was never repeated after case, on which Sinha highlighted that it was not introspection/retrospection by Congress but the impact of court judgement led Congress stop the practice.
The debate was on the recent political development of Karnataka and participated by senior BJP leader and sr Advocate, Supreme Court, Amitabh Sinha, Congress spokesperson Alok Sharma, and Senior journalist and well-known columnist Awadesh Kumar.
