  • Description

    Members of India's Jana Sangh opposition party on Monday (November two) staged a noisy demonstration in New Delhi against the supply of American arms to Pakistan. The demonstrators marched on the United States Embassy chanting anti-American slogans.

    The demonstrators, carrying banners and placards, claimed the resumption of American arms sales to pakistan was unfriendly and against the interests of democratic forces in India.

    Jana Sangh leaders claimed that Pakistan had always made it clear it had only one army in the world -- India. In this context, they said, any country which supplied Pakistan with arms could not be considered a friend of India.

    Speakers told the demonstrators, outside the United States Embassy, that the re-arming of Pakistan by the United States could only be interpreted as an unfriendly act against India. The world's largest democracy, they said, expected more from the world's strongest democracy.
