Video: The Story of Indira Gandhi v. Raj Narain (Part 2)

Posted on behalf of MyLaw

We’ve written here previously about Part 1 of The Case That Triggered An Emergency.

That video was about how a group of underdogs managed to unseat Prime Minister Indira Gandhi through an unprecedented verdict of the Allahabad High Court. The story, as we all know, did not end there. What followed were some of the darkest days in independent India’s political history.

myLaw, which makes self-learning tools for the law, has come out with the second part of its video on Indira Gandhi v. Raj Narain.

It features interviews with Shanti Bhushan (who represented the petitioners before the Allahabad High Court) and archival footage of an interview with Justice V.R. Krishna Iyer (who was the vacation bench judge when the matter came to the Supreme Court for a stay order).

Watch the conclusion of the story here.
