  • Description

    INDIAN ALLEGATIONS OF INCREASING EVIDENCE OF CHINESE CONCENTRATIONS ON HER BORDER HAS BEEN THE SUBJECT OF URGENT CONSULTATIONS BETWEEN MR NEHRU AND THE RULING CONGRESS PARTY.

    ON THURSDAY THERE WAS AN EMERGENCY MEETING OF THE PARTY'S WORKING COMMITTEE AT PRIME MINISTER NEHRU'S HOME. THERE HAVE BEEN SIGNS OF DISCORD IN THE PARTY IN RECENT MONTHS CAUSED BY THE GOVERNMENT'S DEFENCE POLICY. CLAIMS HAVE BEEN MADE THAT THE CONGRESS PARTY HAS LOST TOUCH WITH THE MASSES.

    THE MEETING WAS ATTENDED BY GOVERNMENT MINISTERS, INCLUDING MR LAL BAHADUR SHASHTRI, THE HOME MINISTER, AND MR KAMRAJ NADAR, THE CHIEF MINISTER OF MADRAS. LATER IT WAS REPORTED THAT THESE TWO MINISTERS HAD OFFERED TO RESIGN AND TO DEVOTE THEIR ENERGY TO REBUILDING THE PARTY AND RENEWING CONTACT WITH THE MASSES.

    (THIS MEETING FOLLOWED A PRIVATE MEETING OF THE CONGRESS PARTY'S PARLIAMENTARY EXECUTIVE THE DAY BEFORE, WHEN MR NEHRU REPORTED THAT THE CHINESE HAD "COME VERY NEAR THE BORDER AND ESTABLISHED SUPPLY DUMPS AND OTHER BASES." THEY HAD RECENTLY STRENGTHENED THEIR POSITIONS NEAR THE INDIAN BORDER, HE ADDED.)
