Mounting a scathing attack on Congress chief Sonia Gandhi, BJP MP Subramanian Swamy on Saturday alleged that she wanted to declare a state of emergency in the country by “cooking up Hindu terror business” in the period 2011-12.

Inaugurating a meeting to mark the 41st anniversary of the Emergency, Swamy said no more emergency could be declared in the country because of the significant constitutional amendment passed by the Janata government which had come into power after the Emergency had been withdrawn in 1975.
