While the Prime Minister praised the achievements of Indian athletes, there is an ongoing protest by well-known Indian women wrestlers demanding the arrest of Brij Bhushan Sharan Singh, who is both the Chief of the Wrestling Federation of India (WFI) and a BJP leader, for alleged sexual assault.
The Prime Minister also talked about the Emergency in India, which was imposed on June 25, 1975, by then-Prime Minister Indira Gandhi. He called it a “dark day” in India’s history. He then highlighted the ‘Azadi ka Amrit Mohatsav’ celebration that India is currently observing.
The mother of democracy in India. We must never forget June 25th, when the emergency was declared. It was a troubling time in India’s history. Millions of people fiercely opposed the emergency. The imagination still quakes thinking about how severely the supporters of democracy were tortured then, he remarked.
“We must also take note of such crimes today as we honor Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav. The younger generations will learn the significance of democracy from this, he continued.
