Background: Law and order, industrial unrest and violence and government proposals to deal with these problems were discussed by the Indian Prime Minister, Mrs. Gandhi during a tour of Central areas of India during the past week. On Monday, Mrs Gandhi received a jubilant welcome in Mysore.
The major purpose of Mrs Gandhi's tour, which also took in Bangalore and Tumkur, was to outline government policy throughout the country. She repeatedly spoke of the need for people to make greater sacrifices with the eventual aim of eradicating poverty and introducing socialism. Mrs Gandhi has also strongly attacked violence, particularly political violence which has affected West Bengal. She denied that her tour was aimed at toppling opposition governments in a number of states she has visited.
It is estimated that during her tour, which included the visit to Mysore, the Indian prime minister addressed her self to more than three million people. Her welcome at Mysore was among thee warmest she has received since last year she began her policy of touring the country to meet the people.
