"Congress killed democracy by forcing emergency in 1975": Dhami

Uttarakhand:  Pushkar Singh Dhami, the chief minister of Uttarakhand, claimed on Saturday that the Congress had killed democracy by imposing an emergency on the nation and imprisoning anyone who objected to it.

Dhami said June 25, 1975, will always be remembered as a "sad chapter" in independent India's history while virtually taking part in a programme hosted at the BJP's district office here in commemoration of the "soldiers of democracy" (loktantra ke senani) on the 47th anniversary of the emergency on Saturday.

Speaking practically from Delhi, he said, "Whoever rose up and came forth to resist it (the emergency) was taken to jail and exposed to atrocities."

The chief minister also presented shawls and mementos to each of the 28 "soldiers of democracy" who were imprisoned for defying the emergency in order to honour them.
