PM recalls dark days of Emergency; says no force can ever trample the basic tenets of our Constitution

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said India remembers the emergency as a dark period during which every institution was subverted and an atmosphere of fear was created. 

In a series of tweets Tuesday morning, Mr Modi said, not only people but also ideas and artistic freedom were held hostage to power politics. 

Prime Minister saluted the courage of all those great women and men who steadfastly resisted the emergency, which was imposed 43 years ago and said their struggles ensured people power prevailed over authoritarianism and the stifling of civil liberties. 

He said no force can ever trample the basic tenets of Constitution and appealed to always work to make Indian democratic ethos stronger. He said writing, debating, deliberating, questioning are vital aspects of Indian democracy.
