  • Description

    Little reaction and general public calm reigned in Trivandrum, capital of Kerala, at the inception of Presidential rule following the dismissal of the Communist State Government.

    At Government House, where the actual dismissal of Ministers took place briefly and formally at a farewell British-style tea party, acting Governor V. Shankar is carrying out interim administration until a new Government is formed, Elections are expected to be held within six months.

    Mr. Shankar appointed by the Central Government in New Delhi, is responsible to State Governor Ramakrishna Rao, the representative of the President of India. Governor Rao, indisposed, has sought to be relieved of his office several times in the last 12 months.

    Aiding the acting Governor is the Governor's Chief Secretary N.A.S. Raghavachari.

    With the 50-day old Opposition's agitation against the Communist State Government over, Opposition-supported private school managers reopened their schools. Thousands of boys and girls with books under arm and their teachers returned to the labours of class. Schooling under the Communist Government's new Education Act was the main issue that turned the masses against the Government they elected two and a half years ago.
