  • Description

    THE INDIAN PRIME MINISTER, MRS INDIRA GANDHI, HAS RENEWED HER COUNTRY'S OFFER OF A NON-AGGRESSION PACT WITH PAKISTAN DURING CELEBRATIONS AT INDIA'S 21ST INDEPENDENCE DAY YESTERDAY (AUGUST 15).

    MRS GANDHI ADDRESSED A BIG CROWD FROM THE RAMPARTS OF THE HISTORIC RED FORT AT A FLAG-RAISING CEREMONY IN NEW DELHI, AND APPEALED TO PAKISTAN TO RECONSIDER SIGNING A PACT SO THAT BOTH COUNTRIES COULD GIVE UNDIVIDED ATTENTION TO THEIR INTERNAL PROBLEMS.

    BEFORE HER ADDRESS, MRS GANDHI INSPECTED A GUARD OF HONOUR PROVIDED BY INDIA'S ARMY, NAVY AND AIR FORCE, AND THE NEW DELHI POLICE. HE ALSO EMPHASISED THE CONTINUED THREATS TO INDIA'S BORDERS AND URGED THAT HER COUNTRYMEN BE VIGILANT.
