Shah slams Rahul, re­calls Emer­gency

The Times of India (Mumbai edition) - - TIMES NATION -

New Delhi: Terming Con­gress’s sup­port to JD(S) in Kar­nataka as “shame­ful”, BJP pres­i­dent Amit Shah on Thurs­day hit out at Con­gress chief Rahul Gandhi and re­called how civil rights were vi­o­lated by Con­gress when Emer­gency was im­posed in the coun­try.

“The Con­gress pres­i­dent ob­vi­ously doesn’t re­mem­ber the glo­ri­ous his­tory of his party. The legacy of Rahul Gandhi’s party is the hor­rific Emer­gency, bla­tant misuse of Ar­ti­cle 356, sub­vert­ing courts, me­dia and civil so­ci­ety,” Shah tweeted, reacting to Rahul’s al­le­ga­tion that the in­vi­ta­tion to B S Yed­dyu­rappa to form gov­ern­ment in Kar­nataka was “mur­der of democ­racy”.

“Mur­der of democ­racy hap­pened the minute a des­per­ate Con­gress made an ‘op­por­tunist’ of­fer to JD(S),” Shah said.
