Background: In India, on the first day of the Monsoon season of parliament, protesters defied a ban on demonstrations near the parliament buildings and charged the government has failed to provide security to minorities that have a experienced growing violence. And a day later, on Tuesday (10 July) fourteen more members of parliament resigned from the Janata Party. This further reduces the ruling party's overall majority, 24 hours before a no-confidence motion.
SYNOPSIS: So far, 27 Janata members have resigned from the party since the opening day on Monday, (9 July) after a recess marked by a deterioration in law and order and a sudden rise in inflation. Demands for the resignation of Prime Minister Morarji Desai continued to grow as the former Janata party members promised they would support the no-confidence motion. outside the house members of the Jamait-E-Ulema Hind Party--a non-communal Moslem group, defied the ban on demonstrations in the area and shouted anti-government slogans. But later they peacefully entered police vans to be taken away. The group announced they intend to stage similar protests every day for the next few weeks.
There have been growing allegations that the Janata Party is dominated by a Militant Hindu revivalist group.
