Chidambaram Critiques PM Modi’s Remarks on 1975 Emergency

Congress leader P Chidambaram responded sharply to Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s remarks on the 1975 Emergency, asserting that the Indian electorate has unequivocally safeguarded the Constitution’s fundamental principles through democratic means. In a pointed rebuttal on social media, Chidambaram emphasized that the people’s democratic choices during elections have thwarted any attempts to alter the Constitution’s basic structure.

He highlighted that India will persist as a liberal, democratic, and secular nation, despite political rhetoric aimed at tarnishing past actions of the Congress party. Chidambaram’s remarks underscored the ongoing political debate over historical events like the Emergency, contrasting Modi’s critique with a defense of democratic values and constitutional integrity.
