  • Description

    President V.V. Giri yesterday (Tuesday) opened the new session of the Indian Parliament following Mrs. Indira Gandhi's overwhelming election victory. He described it as "a massive mandate for peaceful change that must swiftly and visibly change the picture of poverty."
    Among the Government's policies mentioned in the presidential speech were: vigorous implementation of land reform laws, a ceiling on urban property, abolition of princely privileges, a crash programme to combat unemployment and a plan to increase production in the public and private sectors.

    This film, showing the arrival of leading figures and the Presidential procession towards the Central Hall of Parliament House, was shot by Visnews cameraman Prem Prakash.
