Country Now Facing ‘Super Emergency’: Derek O’Brien Of TMC


Kolkata: Coming as a relief to the Congress, the Trinamool Congress on Tuesday fielded its spokesperson and MP Derek O’Brien to speak about how the country, under the NDA government, was facing a “super emergency”. The MP made the remark during a Facebook live chat broadcast from the TMC’s official page.

As per The Indian Express report “From this morning, we have noticed on Facebook and Twitter that the BJP and its billion dollar troll army are talking about the Emergency. That was an Emergency that happened in 1975. But what we are seeing today is not an Emergency but a super emergency. We are calling this super emergency because everything is under threat. The constitution, organisations of the government, judiciary, executive, legislature, media and financial instutions are under threat,” O’Brien said. He added that the BJP was pursuing a political vendetta to throttle the voices of Opposition parties.

The TMC MP said his party is not the only one fighting against the “super emergency”. “DMK, AAP, TRS, TDP, RJD, Congress, SP, BSP, NCP and others are fighting this super emergency in their respective states. Just as the government was voted out of power after the Emergency, this government will be thown out of power at the end of this super emergency,” said O’Brien.
