Panaji: Goa Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar today described the imposition of Emergency in 1975 as the “darkest phase in the democratic history” of India.

The Emergency was imposed on this day in 1975 by the then Congress government led by Indira Gandhi.

On its the 43rd anniversary today, Parrikar lauded those who fought against the “atrocities” of the then Congress government.

“India saw the darkest phase in its democratic history when Mrs Gandhi imposed national Emergency, the draconian act of crushing civil liberties. Salute those who fought against the atrocities unleashed by Congress government,” the chief minister said in a tweet.

The imposition of the Emergency had then evoked a nationwide outrage and triggered a mass movement which forced Gandhi to lift it in 1977.

The BJP is holding various programmes across the country today to condemn the imposition of the Emergency in 1975.
