  • Description

    INDIA'S RULING CONGRESS PARTY IS HOLDING A NATIONAL CONFERENCE AT HYDERABAD, AND HAS STARTED BY LAUNCHING A COUNTER-OFFENSIVE AGAINST NON-CONGRESS COALITIONS THAT REMOVE IT FROM POWER IN SEVERAL STATES IN THE GENERAL ELECTIONS OF FEBRUARY LAST YEAR.

    THE PARTY HAS DENOUNCED NON-CONGRESS STATE GOVERNMENTS AS ATTEMPTING TO PUSH INDIA 'DOWN THE HILL ON ALL FRONTS'. THE CONGRESS PARTY HAS ALSO BLAMED NON-CONGRESS STATE GOVERNMENTS FOR ENCOURAGING AN ATMOSPHERE OF VIOLENCE AND LAWLESSNESS IN INDIA.

    THE CONFERENCE WAS OPENED BY THE NEW PRESIDENT OF THE CONGRESS PARTY, MR. NIJALINGAPPA.

    AS THE INDIAN PRIME MINISTER, MRS GANDHI, DROVE THE CONFERENCE SHE WAS SURROUNDED BY A GROUP OF DEMONSTRATORS CARRYING BLACK FLAGS. THEY WERE PROTESTING AGAINST RISING FOOD PRICES AND THE RECENT DISMISSAL OF THE WEST BENGAL UNITED FRONT STATE GOVERNMENT.

    AMONG THE MOST IMPORTANT MATTERS TO BE CONSIDERED IS A STUDY OF THE CONGRESS PARTY'S OWN SHORTCOMINGS, HIGHLIGHTED BY ITS WIDESPREAD SETBACKS IN FEBRUARY'S GENERAL ELECTIONS.
