She was elected as the Prime Minister and remained till March 24, 1977.
It is worth mentioning that after being elected to the Prime Minister in 1967, she remained the Prime Minister till the end but between 1977 and 1980, she had to be ousted from her office. She made Morarji Desai the Deputy Prime Minister and Finance Minister of the country.
In 1969, with Morarji Desai, there were differences on many issues, and finally the Indian National Congress was divided.
Morarji Desai ruled out to support the socialists and communist parties. After some time, the country had to face war again. During the war in 1971, she gave a new direction to national security and foreign policy.
As a result, India won a spectacular victory in the war. During this time, Bangladesh got independence from Pakistan. In fact, Indira Gandhi played an important role in liberating Bangladesh.
It is said that after the victory, when Parliament session began, opposition leader Atal Bihari Vajpayee in his speech addressed Indira Gandhi as ‘Durga’.
Indira Gandhi imposed emergency on June 26, 1975 in the country. Because of this, his party lost for the first time in the 1977 general election. Even She had to go to jail in October 1977 and December 1978. But she did not give up and was struggling hard. Then in 1980 she again returned to power.
The Congress got a great success, and in 15 out of the 22 states, the Congress party formed the government successfully. On 14 January 1980, she again became the Prime Minister of the country and ruled till the end of her life.
In those days, terrorism was at peak in Punjab. She daringly started campaigning against the separatists in Punjab. Because of this, the separatist became the enemy of her life and on October 31, 1984 his bodyguards murdered her in Delhi at her own residence,10-janpath. The country was immersed in mourning by her sudden death.
Mr. Atal Bihari Vajpayee while comparing Mrs. Indira Gandhi with Pandit Jawaharlal Nehru, had said that unlike his father, Mrs. Indira Gandhi used to stay away from the Parliament. At the beginning, she kept so quiet that she was told to ‘Gungi Gudiya’, but it was an injustice to her. She believed in speaking less. After listening to all the things, she stabilized their mind and used to manifest at the end. Instead of spending time in the House, she used to sit in her room and rotate the keys of power. She ruled the world for fourteen years miraculously but many times opponents revolted against her. There was a lot of pressure in the Parliament with Indira Gandhi many times, but the differences in politics did not allow her to be distracted in personal relations.
The ruthless tragedy and brutal murder snatched one such politician from us, not only as a capable daughter’s father, but his personal abilities, Political Leadership and an immense socio-Political skills.
In fact, this great and successful politician of the Nation had many miseries in her private life. In 1936, her mother Kamla Nehru left her alone after suffering a tuberculosis for a long time. At that time her age was mere 18 years. Then in the married life, she could only get sorrow. After his marriage, her early life was bold and beautiful, but later on she came to his father’s house and entered to New Delhi.
