Speech Morararji Desai.In a Rally of Janata Party winning after Emergency. (1977)


Morararji became the Prime Minister of Janata Government after the elections held Post-Emergency.


Emergency is known as darkest era of Indian democracy when Mrs. Indira Gandhi ruled India in her own style. (1975-77).


Following the passing of Prime Minister Lal Bahadur Shastri, Desai was a strong contender for the position of Prime Minister, only to be defeated by Indira Gandhi in 1966. He was appointed as Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance in Indira Gandhi's cabinet, until 1969. He resigned from the Congress during the split of 1969, and joined the INC (O). After the controversial emergency was lifted in 1977, the political parties of the opposition fought together against the Congress, under the umbrella of the Janata Party, and won the 1977 election. Desai was elected Prime Minister, and became the first non-Congress Prime Minister of India.
