A straightforward admission: How Rahul Gandhi can free Congress from the taint of Emergency

What matters far more is what the Congress leaders today, and that means Sonia Gandhi and Rahul Gandhi, think about the Emergency. A straightforward admission of a mistake by the descendants of the long-dead Indira would liberate the rest of the party whose tongues are tied because speaking up against the Emergency would be tantamount to speaking up against its demi gods. #Politics #India #Sonia Gandhi #Congress #InMyOpinion #Rahul Gandhi #Indira Gandhi #Emergency

LK Advanis phantom of emergency: do his past references to Hitler connect the dots?

Invoking the dark days of the state of emergency and comparisons between Indira Gandhi and Adolf Hitler have been a pet obsession for LK Advani, the self-styled Bhishma Pitamaha of the BJP. Hitler and Nazi Germany had almost always been part of his discourses on emergency, but on Thursday, when he spoke of his fears of the days of 1975 returning to the country, he didnt speak of Hitler. #Congress #BJP #Narendra Modi #InMyOpinion #Indira Gandhi #LK Advani #RSS #Vishwaroopam #Adolf Hitler
