    A public meeting in the Indian capital, New Delhi on Thursday (22 January) expressed support for the Popular Movement for the Liberation of Angola (MPLA) in the Angolan civil war. India's ruling Congress party and the Indian Communist party organised the meeting.

    It passed a resolution reiterating the "Indian people's long standing and consistent support for the freedom fighters of Angola, who are today hurling back the repeated of offensives of South African and Western mercenary aggression".

    The resolution congratulated the MPLA-formed government for its recent victories which it believed must ensure the end of South Africa's involvement -- "the number one enemy of all the independent states of Africa".

    Among the speakers was Mrs. Purabi Mukerji who is one of the Secretaries of the Congress Party and the Secretaries of the Congress Party and the Secretary of the Indian Communist Party, Mr. C. Rajeshwara Rao. Both expressed the need for solidarity with the MPLA.
