  • Description

    MR. NEHRU, THE INDIAN PRIME MINISTER, RETURNED HOME TO NEW DELHI YESTERDAY (SUNDAY).

    EARLIER A GOVERNMENT SPOKESMAN HAD DENIED THAT MR. NEHRU WAS RETURNING AND STRICT SECURITY MEASURES BARRED PRESS CORRESPONDENTS AND CAMERAMEN FROM ENTERING THE AIRPORT BUILDING. WHEN MR. NEHRU EMERGED BY CAR FROM THE AIRPORT, ACCOMPANIED B HIS DAUGHTER, MRS INDIRA GANDHI, A CORRESPONDENT WHO ASKED HIM HOW HE FELT RECEIVED THE ANSWER: "I AM FEELING FINE."
    MR. NEHRU ARRIVED FROM BHUBANESHWAR, IN NORTH-EAST INDIA, WHERE HE HAD BEEN TAKEN ILL A WEEK AGO WITH HIGH-BLOOD PRESSURE AND A WEAKNESS OF THE LEFT SIDE WHILE ATTENDING THE ANNUAL CONFERENCE OF THE RULING CONGRESS PARTY.

    A BULLETIN ISSUED TODAY SAID THE INDIAN PRIME MINISTER WAS PROGRESSING RAPIDLY TOWARDS A COMPLETE RECOVERY. X-RAY AND BLOOD TESTS MADE TODAY REVEALED NO ABNORMALITY AND BECAUSE HIS PROGRESS WAS SO GOOD THERE WOULD BE NO MORE DAILY MEDICAL BULLETINS.

    ALTHOUGH MR. NEHRU, WHO IS 74, HAS BEEN ADVISED TO REST FOR SEVERAL MONTHS HE IS CONTINUING TO TAKE DECISIONS. NOT LONG AFTER HE RETURNED HOME HE MET MR. NANDA, THE HOME MINISTER, AND SENT HIM TO CALCUTTA WHERE TROOPS HAVE BEEN CALLED OUT TO SUPPRESS RIOTING.
