Speaker Om Birla’s Emergency remarks trigger protests in Lok Sabha, draw PM Modi’s praise

Hours after being re-elected as the Lok Sabha Speaker Om Brila faced uproar from the Opposition after he asked the members to rise for two minutes’ silence to mark the 50th anniversary, which was termed as the “dark days of Emergency” by the Modi government. His appeal sparked a stir in the Lower House as Congress MPs raised slogans against the government.

On the motion on emergency presented in Lok Sabha today, the Lok Sabha Speaker said, “This House strongly condemns the decision to impose Emergency in the country in 1975. Along with this, we appreciate the determination of all those people who strongly opposed the emergency, fought an unprecedented struggle and took the responsibility of protecting the democracy of India.”
