    Background: HUNDREDS OF TROOPS AND POLICE PATROLLED THE STREETS OF JAIPUR ON FRIDAY TO FORESTALL POSSIBLE DEMONSTRATIONS DURING 'SAVE DEMOCRACY DAY', ARRANGED BY THE UNITED OPPOSITION FRONT IN RAJASTHAN.

    A STRINGENT CURFEW WAS IN FORCE IN RAJASTHAN FOR NEARLY A WEEK. IT WAS LIFTED ON SUNDAY. IT HAS BEEN RELAXED FOR ONLY THREE HOURS EACH MORNING TO ALLOW WOMEN TO DO THEIR SHOPPING.

    THE NEWLY-FORMED RAJASTHAN ASSEMBLY IS TO MEET TOMORROW (MONDAY) IN JAIPUR WHILE DISCUSSIONS CONTINUE AMONG THE OPPOSITION PARTIES ON THE INVITATION BY THE GOVERNOR OF RAJASTHAN TO THE CONGRESS PARTY TO FORM A GOVERNMENT. THE OPPOSITION PARTIES CLAIM THE MOVE IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL BECAUSE THE CONGRESS PARTY DID NOT HAVE A MAJORITY.

    THE OPPOSITION JANA SANGH AND SWATANTRA PARTIES WERE PLANNING TO FORM A COALITION.
