1975 emergency was black day for India: Modi

New Delhi, June 26 (IANS) Calling the 1975 emergency period a black day for the country, Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Sunday said that he was “happy” that the people in India have always given priority to democracy.

“I am happy that people in my country have always given importance to democracy. There was a day when voice of people was trampled over but now, the people of India express their views how the government is doing,” said Modi addressing the 21st edition of the monthly radio programme, ‘Mann ki Baat’.

Stating that though people were enjoying complete democracy now, Modi said that there was a time in 1975, when the freedom of the people were curbed and 1,000 of political activist and student leaders were imprisoned without any reason.

“Democracy has given us strength, but the night of June 25-26, 1975, was the darkest night for democracy. I always request people to have full faith in democracy,” he added.
