Lessons from history; Emergency; Shah Commission and Pranab.
Dangers of Rubber stamp president.
The commission found that there was no economic crisis and no crisis of law and order. The commission decided that the decision to impose Emergency was made by prime minister Indira Gandhi alone, without consulting her cabinet colleagues, and was not justified. The report was particularly scathing of Indira Gandhi, her son Sanjay Gandhi, Pranab Mukherjee, Bansi Lal, Kamal Nath and officers belonging to civil services who helped Sanjay Gandhi.
The commission concluded that during the Emergency the provisions of the Maintenance of Internal Security Act and the Defence of India Rules were not followed but were abused in order to damage political opponents. In Chapter XV of the 26 April 1978 Interim Report the Commission said: “The decision to arrest and release certain persons were entirely on political considerations which were intended to be favourable to the ruling party. Employing the police to the advantage of one party is a sure source of subverting the rule of law”.
Indira Gandhi attempted to recall copies of the report wherever possible. However, suppression was not successful. Era Sezhian, an Indian parliamentarian has republished his copy of the report in a book form called “Shah Commission Report – Lost and Regained“.A copy of the report of the commission is held by National Library of Australia.
