Imposed on June 26, 1975, the Emergency was perhaps the darkest hour in the history of the Indian democracy. The initial days of the period were marked by utter chaos. Some people were slaughtered while many families were separated. Several people disguised themselves to ensure safety. Among them were some popular faces too, like that of Narendra Modi and Subramanian Swamy. But why were they seen in the Sikh attire during the emergency in India is a major question!

Indira Gandhi, instead of taking responsibility of the prevailing corruption, chose to use her power to subvert law and brought India under a state of emergency. For 21 months, the country was pushed through a dark tunnel and rebels were captured in an instant. It was a sheer abuse of the power that Mrs. Gandhi demonstrated, bringing everything under the state censor.

Freedom, which India had attained after a long struggle, ceased momentarily. Even the press was censored. All news articles needed government approval to get published. People were arrested on a large scale to avoid as many protests as possible. Jai Prakash, Morariji, L.K. Advani, Asoka Mehta, and Atal Bihari Vajpayee were among the first ones to be arrested. Even the royalty was not spared. Rajmata Vijayaraje Scindia and Maharani Gayatri Devi were also arrested with immediate effect.

In such a situation, where no one was safe, how could Narendra Modi and Subramanian Swamy feel otherwise! So for a long time, they both disguised their real identity.

He blamed the Congress for being hesitant to talk on development and always trying to divide the society. He said, “If you analyze last few elections, you will realize how a few political parties have indulged only in dividing societies on religious lines. They give lollipops to a community before elections and then forget them.”
Modi said that this is the working strategy of Congress where they play with the emotions of communities. They act of being sympathetic towards them and then forget about them after the elections.

“They will never give account of their works. They keep indulging in dividing the society. The political purity cannot be established in the country till the Congress culture is finished from the mainstream.” he added.
Slapping Congress for spreading “rampant” lies, Modi alerted the workers not to get trapped by the opposition’s strategies.

“Congress has resorted to rampant lying after a series of defeats in elections. Earlier, the Congress used to spread lies over five to 10 issues they raised. Now out of 50 issues, 40-45 are based on lies,” the Prime Minister said.

Modi did not stop here. He advised his karykartas to hire foreign agencies to deceive the planning of the Congress party. He said that other political parties do not talk about development while BJP fights only on issues. He added, “This was unacceptable to those parties which only concentrated on division. We govern and also fight elections based only on development model.” (IANS)
