  • Description

    FURTHER ARRESTS OF INDIAN GOLDSMITHS WERE MADE IN NEW DELHI YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) FOLLOWING RENEWED AGITATION FRO CHANGES IN THE LAW GOVERNING GOLD TRANSACTIONS. THIS BRINGS THE TOTAL OF ARRESTS TO 59.

    THE GOLDSMITHS HAVE BEEN DEMONSTRATING OUTSIDE PARLIAMENT HOUSE AGAINST THE ORDER WHICH PROHIBITS THE MANUFACTURE OF JEWELLERY OF MORE THAN 14-CARAT GOLD. THIS ORDER, THEY CLAIM, HAS LED TO LARGE-SCALE UNEMPLOYMENT IN THE INDUSTRY AND HAS ALSO CAUSED THE DEATH, BY SUICIDE, OF MORE THAN 100 OF THEIR FELLOW-CRAFTSMEN.

    ALL PRIVATE SAKES IF GOLD HAVE ALSO BEEN BANNED. THE RESTRICTIONS WERE INTRODUCED AFTER THE SINO-INDIA BORDER CLASH OF LAST YEAR.

    HOWEVER, PUBLIC AGITATION AGAINST THE LAW IS MOUNTING AND SLIGHT RELAXATIONS OF THE PRESENT RIGOROUS ECONOMIC POLICIES IS EXPECTED TO FOLLOW THE REPLACEMENT OF MR MORARJI DESAI AS FINANCE MINISTER. HIS SUCCESSOR, MR T.K.KRISHNAMACHARI, HAS CALLED A REVIEW OF THE GOLD RESTRICTIONS.
