Punishment for opposing Indira Gandhi? MP CM Kamal Nath stops pension to those who fought for democratic values during India’s darkest days

At the end of the day, it is Congress and it rules as per its own terms & policies, doesn’t it? People who fight for the right have no right to survive and the ones standing with all sorts of illegality are heroes, is what Congress and leaders believe in. The flag bearer of the grand old party has once again proved this with his move.

Fetching all anger with his every move, the MP Chief Minister is grabbing all attention for his dictatorship each day. The right-wing part of the Government has expressed its displeasure, after the Congress leader Kamal Nath-led Madhya Pradesh government put on hold the payment of pension to those who were detained under the Maintenance of Internal Security Act (MISA) during the Emergency.

A lot has been spoken about the decision taken by the Congress leader,among many who have expressed their inconvenience about it, BJP leader and Union Railway Minister Piyush Goyal hit out at Madhya Pradesh CM, through his twitter handle and expressed his opinion to the nation.

Indications that the MP government would change the scheme had begun soon after the Congress government assumed power in December. Under the Loknayak Jaiprakash Narayan Samman Nidhi Niyam, nearly 2,000 people jailed during the Emergency get a monthly pension of Rs 25,000 was started by the BJP Government led by Shivraj Singh Chouhan in the state in 2008.

It was all once started by Congress and once adding more to the fire are Congress men themselves. Marking the injustice done to those thousands of fighters for democracy of the nation, Union Sports Minister Rajyavardhan Rathore also slammed Kamal Nath in the matter. calling him ‘one of the greatest cheerleaders of the Emergency’:

Opposing the move by the Congress-led government in the state, BJP general secretary V D Sharma said, “Great injustice has been done to the people from all sections of society who had opposed and suffered a lot during the Emergency that had been imposed to hound people and stifle the democracy.”

It all started during the Emergency imposed by the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi between 1975 to 1977, because of whom, thousands of people were detained under MISA across the country. As known by very Indian the emergency was a tough time for each of them fighting for democracy, and now yet again it is Congress people carrying on with the legacy of torturing people. This decision by the MP Government has fetched anger from all angles not getting an approval from humanity.
