    Currently India already under emergency. What indira emergency was just quarter of that happen today. In today's India gangs of TV anchors, public figures, ruling affiliates, come together support this undeclared emergency. Jobs, health, hospitals, PSUs, SBI, CBI,ED,Police, all add up support to UDE ( Un Declared Emergency 👈😳😳😳😳😳😳😳

    Common man was never affected in any manner during Emergency. In fact, things were moving fast in every government, police were given full powers. People were afraid to commit any crime or corruption. Life was smooth except for present Sanghis who were the main target by Indiraji. See the present situation, no emergency declared, but undeclared emergency since 6 years, more so after successive failures of govt. in all spheres., Cow protection, CAA, NRC, divisive agenda has put the country in the hands of Facists.
