In a rare admission by a Congress leader, Jyotiraditya Scindia has said imposition of Emergency by the Indira Gandhi government was a mistake. Speaking at the Hindustan Times summit in a session moderated by NDTV's Barkha Dutt, the Congress MP also had a message for the BJP: Don't use the Emergency to justify today's wrongs. Any action that throttles the freedom of speech and expression is something that we, as Indian citiziens, cannot be proud of, Mr Scindia said.
