  • Description

    THE CONDITION OF MASTER TARA SINGH, THE LEADER OF SIKHS, WHO HAS UNDERTAKEN A FAST UNTO DEATH IN DEMAND FOR THE CREATION OF A SIKH STATE WAS REPORTED "CAUSING DEEP CONCERN" ON SEPT. 3, THE 20TH DAY OF HIS FAST.

    MASTER TARA SINGH WAS BEING CONSTANTLY WATCHED BY A GROUP OF SIKH DOCTORS, AS HE WAS LYING ON A COT IN THE GOLDEN TEMPLE, MOST SCARED FOR THE SIKHS, IN AMRITSAR.

    TALKING TO PRESSMEN THE LEADER SAID HE WOULD BREAK HIS FAST IF A NEUTRAL INDIAN LEADER LIKE JAI PRAKASH NARAYAN WERE TO ARBITRATE. HE WOULD NOT ACCEPT PREMIER NEHRU'S SUGGESTION THAT A COMMISSION SHOULD BE APPOINTED TO ENQUIRE INTO CHARGES OF DISCRIMINATION AGAINST THE SIKHS. HE ALSO SAID HE WAS NOT THINKING OF TAKING HIS CASE TO THE UNITED NATIONS NOR WAS HE DEMANDING AN INDEPENDENT SIKH STATE, BUT ONE WITHIN INDIAN UNION.

    MEANWHILE AMRITSAR IS QUIET.
