'Indira Gandhi's emergency decision was wrong', not just Rahul, Sonia Gandhi, Manmohan Singh have also agreed

Congress leader Rahul Gandhi termed Emergency 1775 imposed by former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in 1975 as a 'mistake' made by him. He had said, 'Whatever happened during that (1975) was' wrong' and completely different from the present time. Because Congress (Congress) never tried to capture the institutional structure of the country.

Emergency imposed by the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in 1975 is one such topic, which Congress leaders also seem to be alarmed by referring to it on a large scale. However, the emergency imposed at that time has been an exception for years.

What did Sonia Gandhi say?

In May 2004, Congress President Sonia Gandhi, during a conversation with a journalist, recounting the memories of the Emergency, said that my mother-in-law (former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi) herself had said after losing the election that she Had to reconsider his decision.

Asked whether Indira Gandhi felt that her decision of Emergency was a wrong decision? Sonia said in response to this question, 'I felt that he thought it was a mistake. However, it should not be forgotten that at least Indira Gandhi was a democratic heart and a supporter of Prajapaksha. Sonia Gandhi said, 'The current circumstances at that time (1975) compelled her to take such a decision, though she was not comfortable in taking this decision nor did she want to take it.

Asked whether this is a lesson that no government should take the emergency decision again. To this, Sonia said, 'Yes, of course, though that time and time was different'.

Columnist Inder Malhotra writes in his article, 'There is no doubt that Emergency was an important chapter in the history of independent India. For those who went through it, those 19 months of emergency were like a nightmare. All of Indira Gandhi's trusted people, especially her son Sanjay Gandhi, refused to leave the post 'even for a day'. In view of which, the hammer of emergency had to be fired and Indira made a big mistake. Sanjay and his colleagues had made complete preparations for the Emergency together '.

BJP leader Jyotiraditya Scindia

In 2015, the then Congress leader Jyotiraditya Scindia (now with BJP) made the same comment as Rahul's statement. Scindia said that the Emergency imposed in 1975 was a big 'mistake'. Everything that happened during that time was 'wrong'.

Sindhia (Jyotiraditya Scindia) had said, 'Whatever happened in the Emergency was wrong. What happened in the Sikh riots was wrong. Scindia said that even if the government is in power, we should come out and say what is right, what is right and what is wrong. I think the Emergency was a wrong decision for our country '.

Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh

In 2014, Daman Singh, daughter of former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, released his book 'Strictly Personal: Manmohan and Gursharan'. In which he wrote, 'Manmohan Singh said that the Emergency was shocking for him.

Daman Singh wrote in his book, 'Nobody expected Indira Gandhi to go this far. There was too much emphasis on punctuality. Some good things happened. However, an atmosphere of fear had arisen throughout the country at that time. Arbitrary arrests were being made and dharnas were taking place. Family planning programs went on and people were forcibly sterilized in Delhi and some northern states.

Former President Pranab Mukherjee

In the same year, former President Pranab Mukherjee came up with one of his books, 'The Dramatic Decade: The Indira Gandhi Years', in which he called Emergency as audacity. Mukherjee wrote in his book, 'There was a suspension of fundamental rights and political activity, mass arrests of political leaders and activists. Elections were not held, due to which the tenure of MLAs was further extended. These are some of the reasons for the emergency. During this time there was a large-scale violation of the rights of the people. However, Congress and Indira Gandhi had to pay a heavy price for this daring '.

It is believed that West Bengal Chief Minister Siddharth Shankar Roy played an important role in the decision to declare the Emergency. The Emergency decision was his own decision, on which Indira Gandhi agreed and implemented it. Mukherjee wrote in his book, 'Actually Indira Gandhi later told me that she was not even aware of the constitutional provisions for declaration of Emergency'.

Maharashtra: Lockdown rules will be given concession or will continue to be strict, may be decided in the meeting of all-party leaders today

The Maharashtra government imposed a severe Maharashtra lockdown on Monday to stop the second wave of Corona. Except for essential items, other shops are ordered to be closed till the 30th. This has caused resentment among the traders. Traders landed at many places in the state. The Maharashtra Chamber of Commerce has given a warning to open all shops from Monday. The BJP has given its support to the traders. On the other hand, seeing the transition of the corona in the state not decreasing, the working of the state government is being questioned on behalf of the central government.

Amidst these conditions, Chief Minister Uddhav Thackeray (CM Uddhav Thackeray) has called a meeting of all party meeting today. In this meeting, the status of corona infection, lack of vaccine, relaxation of the ban or a strong lockdown and the 10th-12th examination are to be considered and decided.

Three weeks of lockdown signs

Talking to Tv9, Congress leader and Minister Vijay Vadettivar on Friday indicated the lockdown of three weeks. Apart from them, some other leaders also believe that the weekend lockdown will not control corona. If the lives of innocent people are to be saved, the lockdown will have to be prolonged. There are also some festivals this week, due to which there is a possibility of increasing crowds in the markets. Therefore, many leaders are of the opinion that for at least a week, a strong lockdown should be imposed or else the situation will become more explosive due to increased crowd. As it is, there is a shortage of oxygen and ventilators beds in the state. The vaccine is falling short. Therefore, tightening the rules is the only solution.

While the traders have warned that shops will be opened in any condition from Monday. Now in such a situation, everyone's eyes are fixed on what the state government decides.

What will be the decision on the 10th-12th examination?

There is a constant demand that in view of the crisis of Corona, the 10th-12th examination should be canceled or its date should be extended. Examinations of first to eighth and ninth and eleventh have already been canceled in the state. All these students have been ordered to promote in the next class. Now to see what the state government decides about the 10th-12th examination.
