    Background: PARLIAMENT HOUSE IN NEW DELHI WAS THE CENTRE OF ROWDY DEMONSTRATIONS YESTERDAY (THURSDAY).

    ONE DEMONSTRATIONS, ORGANISED BY THE RIGHT WING JAN SANGH PARTY IN PROTEST AGAINST RISING PRICES, ATTRACTED 20-THOUSAND MARCHERS.

    THE SECOND DEMONSTRATION WAS ORGANISED BY INDIA'S GOLDSMITHS WHO ARE PROTESTING AGAINST THE GOLD CONTROL ACT WHICH RESTRICTS THEM TO WORKING WITH FOURTEEN CARAT GOLD ONLY.

    THE JAN SANGH PARTY, IN A FOUR PAGE MEMORANDUM TO THE GOVERNMENT, HAS CALLED FOR CHANGES IN INDIA'S LAND AND DEVELOPMENT POLICIES, AND AN ALTERATION IN THE ECONOMIC SYSTEM
    DURING THE DEMONSTRATION BY GOLDSMITH AND THEIR FAMILIES 315 GOLDSMITH WERE ARRESTED.

    SEVEN HUNDRED GOLDSMITHS ARE NOW IN PRISON IN NEW DELHI AND FOUR THOUSAND MORE HAVE SIGNIFIED THEIR INTENTION OF DEMONSTRATING, AND BEING ARRESTED, TO ASSIST THEIR PROTEST.

    INDIA'S TWO MILLION GOLDSMITHS SINCE 1963 HAVE BEEN CONFINED TO USING 14 CARAT GOLD IN THE MANUFACTURE OF ORNAMENTS AND JEWELLERY. THEY SAY THIS RESTRICTION, AIMED AT ENDING THE SMUGGLING AND HOARDING OF GOLD, HAS PUT THOUSANDS OF THEM OUT OF BUSINESS.
