The Narendra Modi government has created an "atmosphere of fear" and imposed an "undeclared emergency" in the country, senior Congress.leader Abhishek Manu Singhvi alleged today.

Speaking at a programme 'save constitution, save democracy and save the nation' organised by the legal cell of the Rajasthan unit of Congress, the AICC spokesperson accused the Centre of being a "control freak".

"The undeclared emergency is taking the country nowhere and it is ruining the democratic institutions. It has no limits," said Singhvi.

"It is observed that courts are not working independently. Only the advocates can stop it," he added.

Accusing the BJP government at the Centre of failing to take forward the peace process initiated in Kashmir during the UPA regime, the Congress.leader said the situation in the valley worsened in the last four years.

Meanwhile, Rajasthan.Congress chief Sachin Pilot said Congress would storm to power after the assembly elections in Rajasthan and would introduce bills for the protection of journalists and advocates.

"This dictatorial government will be ousted," he said, as he promised to bring in the advocates and journalists protection bills upon assuming power.

He further said that the atmosphere of insecurity and fear prevailing in the country was never seen before.

"People are afraid to express their feelings and their voices are suppressed. We have to think who is responsible for this and how we are going to reply," he said as he accused the BJP of misusing constitutional offices to form governments in different states.

Pilot said that there were people in the government who want to fulfil their wish at any cost.
