44 years ago, this day, Indira Gandhi imposed an #Emergency. It lasted nearly 2 years. Over 1,00,000 journalists, opp leaders & activists were jailed without trial. Many died. SC was subverted. Constitution was suspended. Media was censored.

I salute all who faught against it.

As per Cong mouthpiece Indira Gandhi imposed #Emergency bcoz of Eco crisis,Unemployment, inflation & Foodgrain shortage
Million dollar question is who was responsible for such a pathetic situation of the country & particularly when d so called Iron Lady was ruling for last 10 yrs
Some data :

➡Average inflation rate during Indira Gandhi's 15 year tenure was 20%

➡Bank Interest rates were 16-18%

➡And with draconian Income Tax Slabs during Indira Gandhi times whatever you earned it belongs to government. This was the foundation of Black money generation
That is how the Nehru Gandhi Dynasty ruled.That is why they installed just 16 GW power in first 30 yrs of rule. Everything got taxed. No jobs after passing out. People looked to get scholarships & go abroad. 7 years wait to get scooter, telephone, gas, phone

Days of the Dynasty

On this day in 1975 Mrs Indira Gandhi stripped citizens of #India of their fundamental rights and made chutney of the #Constitution. Our #democracy became a totaliterian state. Darkness descended at noon. The free were enslaved or thrown into jail. #Emergency

1984 General Elections. Those days national parties used to be given 30 minutes on Doordarshan to convey their election manifesto. ABV's telecast advertised by @BJP4India. A small 3"x 2" box in the middle pages of the @IndianExpress
In 1984, @INCIndia called out the opposition as united by greed and not a common ideology. Said "Give ideology a hand". Now, what is #Mahaghatbandhan dear @RahulGandhi? A common greed platform.
Another 1984 elections ad by @INCIndia. Supremely ironical. Asks the voters "will your groceries list in the future include acid bulbs, iron rods and daggers". The country was just fresh from the horrible 1984 Nov Sikh riots, and @RahulGandhi's party asks us this question.

76 yr old Mom needs help gofundme.com/76-yr-old-mom-…
In 2011 I was bitten by a tick. I have a brain tumor/IIH & such severe intestinal damage that I CANNOT digest food w/out enteral food RX. It's $198/wk, even w/pharma discount. My (now) 77-year-old Mom is my caregiver but she can't afford it. Don't have enough to eat/save 🏡. 😭
I contracted E
Chaffeensis, Rickettsia of unknown etiology, & #LymeDisease. I just had 8th spinal tap to relieve pressure on my brain.
I'd been on antibiotics for 19 yrs.
I caught Coxsackie B4 virus-a cousin of polio. Lost most use of (L) side.
I wasn't treated for 11 mos. #Lyme

#NanajiDeshmukh, who today was awarded the #BharatRatna, was a pivotal opposition figure in the Emergency years, and in all three episodes I've recently explored – the 'subversive' protests (1975), the 'anti-national' resistance abroad ('76) & the 'unholy alliance' ('77). Thread.
(2) In late '74, JP's 'sampoorna kranti' agitation was gaining momentum in Patna, led mainly by students. On Nov 4, a massive rally was met with a police lathi-charge. According to legend, Deshmukh protected JP from a blow – which nearly broke his arm.

(3) Emergency was declared in '75. Before #NanajiDeshmukh was arrested, in December, he issued an ‘eight-point programme for Indians abroad’, a manual for what would become the overseas anti-Emergency movement – the original "anti-national" lobby.

Friends, #RahulGandhi spoke in #CongressPlenarySession on @INCIndia only saviour of #judiciary from the wrath of @narendramodi . Let me tell you-

The Story of an Upright Judge
Once, decades back, when the millennial was not even in dreams, 30 years post independence, Congress PM, Indira Gandhi imposed #Emergency. Media was censured and all opposition thrown in Jail.
What it meant for young kids understanding is that you could be on your way for Tinder date at CCD and Police could pick you up under MISA and jail you for year or more before bail. #Emergency
