New Delhi: BJPon Tuesday observed "black day" on the 43rd anniversary of the emergency imposed by former Prime Minister Indira Gandhi on June 26, 1975. 

PM Modi tweeted about the emergency imposed as a "black period"and saluted to all those, who showed courage during that time and fought against the emergency.

PM Modi tweeted: "I salute the courage of all those great women and men who steadfastly resisted the Emergency, which was imposed 43 years ago. Their struggles ensured people power prevailed over authoritarianism and the stifling of civil liberties".

In his second tweet, PM Modi said"India remembers the Emergency as a dark period during which every institution was subverted and an atmosphere of fear was created. Not only people but also ideas and artistic freedom was held hostage to power politics".

PM Modi in his last tweet said"Let us always work to make our democratic ethos stronger. Writing, debating, deliberating, questioning are vital aspects of our democracy which we are proud of. No force can ever trample the basic tenets of our Constitution".

BJP leader Arun Jaitley also shared his views on the 43rd anniversary of the emergency. In a two part blog, Jaitley compared Indira Gandhi to Adolf Hitller and wrote, "Both Hitler & Mrs. Gandhi never abrogated the Constitution. They used a republican Constitution to transform democracy into dictatorship. Hitler arrested most of the opposition Members of Parliament and converted his minority Government in Parliament into a 2/3rd majority government."
