Emergency a blemish on India’s democracy: PM Modi in Germany

Prime Minister Narendra Modi, addressing the Indian diaspora in Germany’s Munich, said that the emergency was a blemish on India’s vibrant democracy and rights were snatched away during that time.

“Democracy is our pride, is in the DNA of every Indian. 47 years ago, on this day, an attempt was made to hold that democracy hostage, suppress democracy. Emergency is a black spot on the vibrant history of India’s democracy,” PM Modi said.

“The people of India answered all the conspiracies to crush democracy. We Indians take pride in our democracy wherever we are. Every Indian proudly says India is the mother of democracy,” the prime minister added.
