Do politicians believe in the future of a purely wonderful and excellent politics? In their constant impression, the level of politics grows out of anything simple or superficial other than the critical facts of a worldly, temporal life. At this very point, wily politicians do evaluate how their extraordinary ideas associate with the shifting policies on various political matters.
A point of conflict since the days of late Indira Gandhi remains a topic of considerable interest for us. Do we select to depict a logical conception of Emergency or do we choose to prefer her ambitions, whose roots lie in exploratory politics? The circumstances in which she promulgated the Emergency had been discussed in different, contradictory aspects. But what remains the fallout of that past phase?
Her grandson Rahul Gandhi, a senior Congress leader, acknowledged that the Emergency imposed by his grandmother and former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in 1975 was a mistake. As political analysts write, it was announced on the basis of unreasonable politics and was viewed as the perfect storm to bring democracy down crashing.
A PM who cared the least to play out a role in spurring the Emergency. At that time, unpredictable political tension and a collapsing economic crisis was proving to be deadly for our democracy and this failure was, to an extent, a product of our democratic system. No due regard towards the democratic institutions and methods remained. This swiftly brought instability and chaos, paving the way for an inevitable constitutional crisis.
Becoming more critical towards the political situation, Rahul Gandhi did not forget to argue that the Congress had, at no point attempted, to capture the country’s institutional framework which is what is going on presently. He equated the country’s scenario today with that of politically turbulent countries. Undoubtedly, the Emergency was a grave mistake. Rahul’s typical reaction comes when he looks largely desperate to establish himself as a perfect leader of the Congress party on the identical political ground that gave immense eminence to his ancestors.
Whatever may be thought of the Emergency in the year 1975 was more than just a product of an ambitious PM who had not cared least to play a final role in spurring the spectre of the Emergency. At that time, unpredictable political tension and a collapsing economic crisis was becoming deadly for our democracy. Emergency was, to an extent, a product of the Indian idea and system of democracy. No due regard towards the democratic institutions and methods caused instability and chaos. In such an environment, a constitutional crisis was largely inevitable before a political leader’s enthusiastic approach.
