Emergency was a mistake: Rahul Gandhi

  • During an event organised by Cornell University, Congress leader Rahul Gandhi stated that the Emergency imposed by his grandmother, Indira Gandhi during the period of 1975-77, was a mistake and what happened during that period was wrong.

  • He further stated that during the period of Emergency, under which fundamental rights ad civil liberties were suppressed and media was restricted, was fundamentally different from the current scenario.

  • He stated that the Congress Party's design does not allow for such things to take place. And added that even Mrs.Gandhi later regretted it. But he added that what is happening now is different since the ruling BJP is filling different institutions with people from RSS background. So, even if they capture power, the institutions will still be in BJP's hold.
