Emergency period.

Emergency period, discussion-
based programmes and audience-
focused shows.
Doordarshan has set up a special
desk for these special
programmes. Stories related to
the happenings during the
Emergency period will be shown

special programmes is to educate
the younger generation about the
value of democracy because they
have themselves not undergone
such periods of turmoil,” senior
consulting editor DD News KG
Suresh told PTI.
The programmes will deal with the
events and happenings in the 21-
month period, when the then
Indira Gandhi-led government had
declared the Emergency.

from 25 June 1975 and was
withdrawn on 21 March 1977.
