Modi heralds change with Gandhi-Lohia-Upadhyay talisman
june 26, the day the Modi governmentcompleted a month in office, was also the 39th anniversary of the beginning of the darkest period of the history of the Republic of India—the 19 months of Emergency—which was also touted as ‘Anushasan Parv’. The period between May 26, 2014, and June 26 also saw the promulgation of discipline (anushasan), with government offices in New Delhi witnessing the revival of governance. But this time draconian powers were not used. The shasan of Narendra Damodar Modi ensured anushasan. The leader has led by example.
