    Indian Premier Nehru said in the Indian Parliament Feb 15 that his country would be prepared to send combat troops to the Congo Republic in response to a United Nations request - but only when it was convinced that they would be rightly employed for the freedom of the people and not in support of the "gangster regime" now ruling there.

  • Description

    Indian Premier Nehru said in the Indian Parliament Feb 15 that his country would be prepared to send combat troops to the Congo Republic in response to a United Nations request - but only when it was convinced that they would be rightly employed for the freedom of the people and not in support of the "gangster regime" now ruling there. Meanwhile, Indians protested against the murder of the deposed Congo Republic Premier, Patrice Lumumba.

    About 400 people gathered outside the Belgian Embassy, and troops stood by in case of trouble. They marched by carrying placards and shouted slogans ... there was also an effigy of "imperialist atrocities".
