  • Description

    THE FIRST ROUND OF A POLITICAL BATTLE AMONG INDIA'S TOP LEADERS OF THE RULING CONGRESS PARTY APPEARED TO HAVE ENDED YESTERDAY (20 JULY) IN FAVOUR OF MRS INDIRA GANDHI, THE PRIME MINISTER.

    MRS GANDHI WAS CHEERED BY CONGRESS PARTY LEGISLATORS AT TWO MEETINGS YESTERDAY (20 JULY), LESS THAN 24 HOURS AFTER SHE CLAMPED 14 LEADING COMMERCIAL BANKS UNDER STATE CONTROL.

    NEITHER IN THE CONGRESS PARLIAMENTARY PARTY NOR IN ITS EXECUTIVE WAS ANY MOVE MADE TO SEEK A VOTE OF NO CONFIDENCE IN THE PRIME MINISTER OVER NATIONALISATION AND HER ABRUPT DISMISSAL OF HER RIGHT-WING DEPUTY AND FINANCE MINISTER, MR MORARJI DESAI.

    A FEW MEMBERS OF THE 42-STRONG EXECUTIVE OF THE PARLIAMENTARY PARTY TRIED TO MOVE A RESOLUTION URGING THE REINSTATEMENT OF MR DESAI TO THE CABINET, BUT THE MAJORITY BACKED MRS GANDHI'S FIRM ASSERTION THAT THE APPOINTMENT AND DISMISSAL OF MINISTERS WAS HER PREROGATIVE, AND NO RESOLUTION WAS MOVED.
