    Background: STRONG CRITICISM OF INDIA'S FOREIGN AND DOMESTIC POLICIES WAS MADE IN NEW DELHI YESTERDAY WHEN A NO-CONFIDENCE MOTION WAS TABLED ON THE GOVERNMENT.PRIME MINISTER NEHRU WAS TOLD: "YOUR FOREIGN POLICY HAS FAILED; YOUR HOME POLICY HAS FAILED AND YOUR ECONOMIC PLAN HAS FOUNDERED."
    THE SPEAKER WAS MR.J.B.KRIPALANI, A FORMER PRESIDENT OF THE RULING CONGRESS PARTY, BUT NOW AN OPPOSITION MEMBER.THE 74-YEAR-OLD FORMER FOLLOWER OF MAHATMA GANDHI OPENED THE DEBATE ON THE COMBINED OPPOSITION MOTION OF NO-CONFIDENCE.IT WAS THE FIRST SUCH MOTION IN INDIA'S 16 YEARS OF INDEPENDENCE.

    MR.KRIPALANI SAID A REPORT SHOULD BE PUBLISHED ON THE ARMY'S REVERSES ON THE NORTHEAST FRONTIER LAST YEAR, AND URGED THAT LAND TAKEN BY THE CHINESE SHOULD BE RECAPTURED.HE ALSO CALLED FOR A DIPLOMATIC BREAK WITH PEKING.

    PUBLIC GALLERIES WERE PACKED FOR MR.KRIPALANI'S HOUR-LONG SPEECH IN WHICH HE CALLED FOR MR.NEHRU'S RESIGNATION AND THE HOLDING OF NEW ELECTIONS.A COMMUNIST DEPUTY, PROFESSOR HIREN MUKERJEE, CLAIMED THAT THE AGREEMENT ON AIR EXERCISES WAS THE FIRST STEP TOWARDS THE ESTABLISHMENT OF BRITISH AND AMERICAN BASES IN INDIA.

    THE COMMUNISTS, WHO HAVE 33 SEATS OUT OF THE 509 WHICH MAKE UP THE INDIAN PARLIAMENT, ARE THE ONLY OPPOSITION GROUP NOT BACKING THE NO-CONFIDENCE MOTION.THE ISSUE IS NOT IN DOUBT.MR.NEHRU'S RULING PARTY HAS 371 SEATS, A FORMIDABLE MAJORITY.HE INTENDS TO ANSWER THE CHARGES MADE AGAINST HIS GOVERNMENT TOMORROW (WEDNESDAY).
