‘Undeclared emergency’ imposed on television and newspapers: Congress

New Delhi,Aug. 17: The Congress party on Wednesday slammed Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his government over the recent incidents including the row surrounding Tripura Chief Minister’s speech and the Gorakhpur tragedy.

Congress leader Ghulam Nabi Azad said Tripura Chief Minister Manik Sarkar’s Independence day address was not broadcasted on Doordarshan and All India Radio as his speech did not include the ‘achievements’ of Modi government.

“The speech of Tripura Chief Minister was blacked out as he does not speak about the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) and its achievements. Undeclared emergency has been imposed on radio, television and newspapers,” Azad said at press conference.

In a veiled attack at BJP’s alliance partner RSS, Azad said the Prime Minister, instead of appealing to the county for unanimity, should ask Sangh people to stop dividing the country.

“Prime Minister always pitches for unity in the country. But India is already united. Prime Minister should ask Sangh people to not divide India,” he added.(source)
