NEW DELHI: On the 45th anniversary of

Emergency

,

Congress member Milind Deora

on Thursday tweeted on the taboo issue and linked the health of political organisations to

internal democracy

, raising surprise in many circles given the sensitivity of the two subjects for his

party

.
Deora wrote, “The Emergency reminds us that democracies, when tested, fight back resiliently. This also applies to political parties. Democratic organisations adapt better and overcome challenges. Democracy is a constant work in progress, requiring commitment, sacrifice and honest introspection.” The tweet triggered many interpretations given that Deora, who is also a former minister and close to

Rahul Gandhi

, is said to be unhappy with his position in the party.
However, according to sources close to Deora, the tweet had no political sub-text and was meant to just make the point about democracy.
