The Emergency was announced by the Indira Gandhi government on June 25, 1975.

The then Prime Minister, Indira Gandhi, was found guilty of electoral malpractices by the Allahabad High Court on June 12, 1975. Gandhi got a conditional stay against the High Court's order from the Supreme Court on June 24, leading to a nationwide protest.

Following this, a state of emergency was declared, suspending elections and muzzling the press. So, who supported the Emergency? It wasn't only politicians. Watch the video to find out the role played by the media and more.
