Hyderabad: Telangana chief minister K Chandrashekhar Rao on Saturday said that the Centre’s services ordinance is reminiscent of the Emergency issued by then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi in 1975.
“…Even the Supreme Court’s judgment is being undermined by bringing in an ordinance. This is reminiscent of the Emergency. This is the Emergency that PM Modi and the BJP leaders keep raising their voices about. This is exactly the same… isn’t it? The Allahabad HC judgment was nullified by bringing in a constitutional amendment. This is the same model,” KCR said.
The BRS chief further said that even Indira Gandhi was brought down from power by listening to the call of Jayaprakash Narayan. “And after that, the Janata Party which was voted to power was brought down by the same people and Indira Gandhi won. India reacts,” he remarked.
KCR said that by bringing in such an ordinance, the Modi government in centre “has not insulted Arvind Kejriwal with this ordinance but has insulted the people of Delhi,” adding that the Delhi government has won by public mandate. “It has not been nominated by anybody. People will teach a lesson,” he said.
