The Indian film industry has always been a soft target for political propaganda. A very distinct instance of this can be the films which were released during the era of Emergency. Emergency propelled movies to be counter-acting to the political strategies of the time.

Due to media censorship, free disposal of content was affected and movies containing any slight reference to politics were completely banned.

One such movie which was prevented from being screened was Amrit Nahata’s ‘Kissa Kursee Ka(KKK)’.

Based on a political satire on Indira Gandhi’s style of governance, the film tried to emphasize on the negative impact of the Indira-Gandhi led government and its forced implementations of the sterilisation program. The film faced severe consequences as the master print for the film was lifted by the supporters of Sanjay Gandhi and was burnt. Here is the link to the film which was not watched by many during that era.

US President Donald Trump has said that he has no immediate plans to resort to a national-emergency declaration to build a wall on the border with Mexico, the issue behind a partial government shutdown now in its 21st day.

“What we’re not looking to do right now is a national emergency,” he said during a White House roundtable on border security on Friday.

“I’m not going to do it so fast,” Trump was quoted as saying by Xinhua news agency.

Donald Trump has said more than once in recent days that he would “probably” declare a national emergency, which would allow him to tap Pentagon funds for construction of a wall to resolve what he claims is a crisis on the border.

The Republican president demands that Congress provide $5.7 billion in funds for the wall as a condition for his agreeing to sign a spending bill that would allow affected federal government departments to resume normal operations.

Democrats, who now control the House of Representatives, say they are prepared to appropriate $1.3 billion for border security, including enhancements to existing fences, but will not pay for construction of a new barrier.

While some prominent Republicans have endorsed the idea of the emergency declaration, other GOP lawmakers remain uneasy.
