  • Description

    THE INDIAN PRIME MINISTER, MR. NEHRU, ADDRESSED HIS FIRST PUBLIC MEETING YESTERDAY (FRIDAY) SINCE THE BIG BORDER CLASHES BETWEEN INDIAN AND CHINESE TROOPS STARTED THREE WEEKS AGO.

    HE TOLD THE CROWD OF MORE THAN 50,000 IN NEW DELHI THAT IT WAS WAR BETWEEN INDIA AND CHINA "EVEN THOUGH FORMALLY IT HAS NOT BEEN DECLARED". HE ADMITTED THAT INDIAN TROOPS IN THE NORTH EAST FRONTIER AGENCY HAD NOT BEEN PREPARED FOR THE HARD WINTER WEATHER IN THE MOUNTAINS BUT HE SAID THE SITUATION WAS NOW IMPROVING.

    THE MEETING WAS ORGANISED BY EMPLOYEES OF THE CENTRAL GOVERNMENT AND HELD AT THE RAM LILA GROUNDS IN NEW DELHI. MANY GROUPS IN THE LARGE CROWD HELD BANNERS WITH ANTI-CHINESE SLOGANS ON THEM.

    EARLIER, MR. NEHRU WARNED THE INDIAN PARLIAMENT TO PREPARE FOR A LONG "WAR OF ATTRITION" WITH CHINA. INDIANS WERE TO BE ON GUARD AGAINST "SO-CALLED PEACE OFFENSIVES".
