Bhopal, Jun 25 (UNI) Bharatiya Janata Party leader and former Madhya Pradesh Chief Minister Kailash Joshi today said a situation akin to 'undeclared emergency' is prevailing at present in the country.
''Though internal emergency was imposed on this date 33 years ago, there was no major difference in those and present circumstances,'' Mr Joshi said, adding inflation has become uncontrollable and separatists had been spreading their tentacles but Centre was taking no step.
He was addressing a function organised to honour those detained under Maintenance of Internal Security Act (MISA) and Defence of India Rules (DIR) during emergency at the Chief Minsiter's residence here.
Chief Minister Shivraj Singh Chouhan, former Chief Minister Sunderlal Patwa, BJP's senior leaders and MISA detenus were present.
In an obvious reference to the UPA government but without taking any names Mr Joshi said ''Despite being in minority, they claim to have majority. Leaders are saying that they cannot control the situation and nobody is accountable''.
''There was a great danger to internal and external security and this was a situation of undeclared emergency'', he added.
''If circumstances related with internal and external security are not be checked then the country will have to face dire consequences in future,'' Mr Joshi warned.
