To revitalise the party after a series of depressing lows, the Congress is planning to fall back on its national icon Indira Gandhi (yet again) and digitalise her photographs and speeches.

According to reports, it was during the book launch of “The Unseen Indira Gandhi” written by physician KP Mathur that journalists got hints of the party’s plan.
The book was released in New Delhi in presence of Congress president Sonia Gandhi. The foreword of the book has been written by Priyanka Gandhi.

The reports state that the party is planning to preserve Indira’s audio and videos, many of which are not in good condition.
The list of speeches that would be digitalised also includes the interview she gave to historian Bipan Chandra in which she talked about the Emergency days.
