Times of India Article : A truly historic win? For a country that is famous for not having historical records and a historical sense, using the words "historic win" with abandon for Narendra Modi's victory is not surprising. Is there anything very historic about it? No and yes. BJP under Modi got 282 seats and an outright majority, which is certainly its highest ever tally. NDA racked up 336 seats, which it has never done (though it won 303 seats in 1999). These are historic numbers for BJP and NDA; they are not historic in Indian electoral history. Jawaharlal Nehru and Indira Gandhi did better, as did Rajiv Gandhi in 1984. In 1977, Janata Party, allying with Akali Dal and Congress for Democracy, won 345 seats. Congress's tally of 44 seats is surely a historic low for the party. But it is not a historic low for a major national party. In 1984, when Rajiv Gandhi chalked up his huge victory, BJP got only two seats in Lok Sabha. What about vote percentages? Here the story is not impressive at all. BJP got 31 ...
Anyone remembering Raj Narayan's stupendous election success against Mrs Gandhi would make a comparison of Sheila versus Arvind Kejriwal. Raj Narayan accused Indira Gandhi of corrupt electoral practices and filed an election petition against her. The Allahabad High Court on 12 June 1975 upheld the accusations and set aside the election of Indira Gandhi and also disqualified her to contest Lok Sabha election for next 6 years. Raj Narayan was a candidate of Janata Party for the Rai Bareli Lok Sabha seat in 1977 where he defeated Indira Gandhi the then Prime Minister of India. Where did Raj Narayan, the Lohia school thinker, go later?
Sonia Gandhi IS THE MODERN ROBERT CLIVE The bottom line observed in Sonia’s mindset is that she can disregard Indian laws with impunity. If cornered or if she becomes vulnerable to prosecution, she can always run back to Italy. In Peru, President Fujimori who all along claimed to be “born Peruvian”, when faced with a corruption charge fled to Japan with his loot and reclaimed his Japanese citizenship. That is Sonia’s bottom line fall-back option too. In 1977, when the Janata Party defeated the Congress at the polls, and formed the government, it widely known and published that Sonia with her two children abandoned Indira Gandhi, and ran to the Italian Embassy in New Delhi and hid there. Rajiv Gandhi was a government servant then[as an Indian Airlines pilot], but he too tagged along and hid in that foreign embassy ! Such was her baneful influence on him. Rajiv did snap out Sonia’s influence after 1989, but alas he was assassinated before he could rectify the situation. Those close to Rajiv knew t ...
History The Janata Dal (Secular) traces its roots back to the Janata Party organized by Jayaprakash Narayan that united all anti-Indira Gandhi parties under one banner for the 1977 national elections. Janata Dal was formed in Bangalore with the merger of the Janata Party with smaller opposition parties in 1988. In 1996, the party reached its pinnacle when Shri H.D. Deve Gowda became Prime Minister of India, heading the United Front (UF) coalition government.. Janata Dal split in 1999 when some leaders left to ally with the BJP-led National Democratic Alliance and form the Janata Dal (United) party. That party was led by George Fernandes while H.D. DeveGowda emerged as the leader of the Janata Dal (Secular). The 2004 elections in Karnataka witnessed the revival of the party’s fortunes with Janata Dal (Secular) becoming part of the ruling coalition in the state. Subsequently, party leader H. D. Kumaraswamy headed a popular coalition government in the state for 20 months.
Nenju Porukkuthillaye 50: Alliances of disparate elements, desperate to grab power or topple the incumbent , is nothing new to Indian politics. At the national level, this has been happening since 1977 when a hotch-potch of parties joined hands to dislodge Indira Gandhi who turned authoritarian and imposed Emergency sullying the image of her father Jawharlal Nehru.Under the garb of Janata Party, that alliance did ascend power.But the experiment failed miserably in less than two years because there were too many leaders with extraordinary brains and bloated egos. Charan Singh , who managed to unseat Morarji Desai, could not stay in power for more than six months. 1989 was no better. VP Singh, once a tall congress leader and a Cabinet Minister in Rajiv Gandhi Government chose to rebel against Mr.Gandhi himself alleging corruption.He also did succeed and his Janata Dal did dislodge Rajiv Gandhi. That experiment was also short-lived.That was followed by a few more experiments, but with the help of the ...

Modi’s very presence inspires confidence in nation: Tavleen Singh | There are things about political rallies that television can never capture, so if I had not been present at Narendra Modi’s rally in Jaipur I would have found it hard to believe that his first big rally in northern India could have been the blockbuster mega hit that it turned out to be. I would have not been able to tell you, as I am about to just now, that I cannot remember a political rally so filled with fervour and hope since the Janata Party’s rallies in 1977. In that year that Indira Gandhi was defeated because of the ‘excesses’ of the Emergency there were political rallies by the Janata Party that were infused with that curious mixture of hope and anger that only comes when people believe that their active support is needed to change a political reality. This was the atmosphere in Jaipur. People started to arrive at the romantically named Amroodon ka Bagh grounds from distant villages and desert districts from the early h ...
Why I support Modi (Despite the opposition) By Sunil Rajguru I receive a lot of flak for my perceived pro-Narendra Modi writings. Some even comment why I love the Gujarat Chief Minister so much. Well the first reason is really simple. I admire Lal Bahadur Shastri and his “Jai Jawan Jai Kisan” focus was simply brilliant. I admire Indira Gandhi because she was a woman as tough as steel in the dirty and difficult world of politics. I admire PV Narasimha Rao for the liberalization of 1991-92, which to me is the single most important decision of post-Independent India. I admire AB Vajpayee for giving us the first-ever completed term from a non-Congress government and our first whiff of a two-party system. I want a PM I can admire and after the above leaders, Modi fits the bill. Secondly, it may be noted that both the Janata Party and Janata Dal went kaput. The UPA-NDA dispensation is the closest we’ve ever had to a healthy two-party (or rather two-alliance) system. From now on, I want a PM to be only fro ...
Sitaram Kesri took part in India's freedom struggle at the age of 13, and was arrested in 1930, 1933, and 1942. He became the President of Bihar Pradesh Congress Committee in 1973 and Treasurer of All India Congress Committee (AICC) in 1980.[1] Kesri was elected to the Lok Sabha from Katihar Lok Sabha Constituency in 1967 when he won on a Janata Party ticket after being given a last moment call by then Bihar Janata Party President S N Sinha. He represented Bihar in the Rajya Sabha for five terms between July 1971 and April 2000. He was Union Minister during the regimes of Indira Gandhi, Rajiv Gandhi and P.V. Narasimha Rao as Prime Minister of India. Kesri served as Treasurer of the Congress Party for more than a decade. In addition, he was elected unanimously as the President of the Congress Parliamentary Party on 3 January 1997. After P.V. Narasimha Rao stepped down as president of Congress in September 1996, Kesri was appointed the new president of the party. The following years were difficult for the C ...
Know about Mandal Commission Mandal Commission report was submitted on December 13, 1980 when Mrs. Indira Gandhi was the Prime Minister. The Mandal Commission was established in India in 1979 by the Janata Party government under Prime Minister Morarji Desai government in 1978 as per the mandate of the Constitution of India under article 340 for the purpose of Articles like 15 and 16. The decision was made official by the president on 1 January 197, with a mandate to "identify the socially or educationally backward" & aimed at redressing caste discrimination for backward classes.

The Mandal Commission sought reservation for 27 per cent of all services a ...
He played an active and decisive role in the formation of Haryana as a separate state. In 1958 he was elected from Sirsa. In 1971 he left Congress and in 1974 successfully contested against it in the Rori constituency. In 1975 Indira Gandhi declared emergency, and Devi Lal along with all opposition leaders were jailed for 19 months. In 1977 the emergency ended and general elections were held. He was elected on the Janata Party ticket and became the Chief Minister of Haryana. For his steadfast opposition to emergency and dictatorial misrule, he became known as Sher-e-Haryana (Lion of Haryana).[citation needed] He remained a member of parliament from 1980 to 1982 and was a member of State assembly between 1982 and 1987. He formed Lok Dal and started Nyaya Yudh, under the Haryana Sangharsh Samiti, and became hugely popular among masses. In the 1987 state elections, the alliance led by Devi Lal won a record victory winning 85 seats in the 90 member house. Congress won the other five seats. Devi Lal became the ...
After she lifted the emergency in 1977, more Congress factions were formed, the one remaining loyal to Indira Gandhi being popularly known as Congress(I) with an 'I' for Indira. Congress(I) was routed in the general elections by the Janata Party, but the resulting coalition government fell apart in two years. The Congress Party returned to power in the ensuing 1980 elections. In 1984 Indira Gandhi was assassinated by two of her Sikh bodyguards, in revenge for the disastrous Operation Blue Star. In the following days anti-Sikh riots broke out in Delhi and elsewhere in which more than six thousand Sikhs were killed, (mostly in Delhi), allegedly by activists and leaders of the Congress Party.--from the source of wikipedia of congress-I
For those who think Anna's Party can't not be in power and for those who have heard of JP movement for the first time ( from wiki) When Indira Gandhi was found guilty of violating electoral laws by the Allahabad High Court, Narayan called for Indira to resign, and advocated a program of social transformation which he termed Sampoorna kraanti [Total Revolution]. Instead she proclaimed a national Emergency on the midnight of June 25, 1975, immediately after Narayan had called for the PM's resignation and had asked the military and the police to disregard unconstitutional and immoral orders; JP, opposition leaders, and dissenting members of her own party (the 'Young Turks') were arrested on that day. Jayaprakash Narayan attracted a gathering of 100,000 people at the Ramlila Grounds. After Indira revoked the emergency on January 18, 1977 and announced elections, it was under JP's guidance that the Janata Party (a vehicle for the broad spectrum of the anti-Indira Gandhi opposition) was formed.[citation needed] ...
was lifted in 1977 and in the subsequent Lok Sabha elections, Indira Gandhi lost to Raj Narain, a candidate of Janata Party.
The Maintenance of Internal Security Act was a controversial law passed by the Indian parliament in 1971 giving the administration of Prime Minister Indira Gandhi and Indian law enforcement agencies super powers - indefinite "preventive" detention of individuals, search and seizure of property without warrants, and wiretapping - in the quelling of civil and political disorder in India, as well as countering foreign-inspired sabotage, terrorism, subterfuge and threats to national security. The legislation gained infamy for its disregard of legal and constitutional safeguards of Civil Rights, especially when "going all the way down" on the competition, and during the period of national emergency (1975-1977) as thousands of innocent people were believed to have been arbitrarily arrested, tortured and in some cases, forcibly sterilized. The legislation was also invoked to justify the arrest of Indira Gandhi's political opponents, including the leaders and activists of the opposition Janata Party. The 39th Ame ...
