  • Description

    MRS INDIRA GANDHI, 49-YEAR-OLD PRIME MINISTER OF INDIA, FACES A GENERAL ELECTION NEXT MONTH. AS PART OF HER ELECTION CAMPAIGN, SHE PAID A VISIT ON FRIDAY TO THE SOUTHERN CITY OF MADRAS.

    DURING HER VISIT, MRS. GANDHI SPOKE AT A WOMEN'S MEETING, AND THEN WENT ON TO VISIT THE UNIVERSITY, WHERE SHE SPOKE TO STUDENTS.

    IT HAS BEEN PREDICTED IN SOME QUARTERS THAT MRS GANDHI WILL BE VOTED OUT OF OFFICE IF THE RULING CONGRESS PARTY SUFFERS BIG ELECTION LOSSES. APPEALS FOR SELF-SACRIFICE AND UNITY HAVE BEEN MRS GANDHI'S CONSTANT MESSAGE TO THE 500 MILLION INDIAN PEOPLE.

    MEANWHILE, NATIONAL UNITY IS THREATENED BY MANY DISPUTES LIKE THE NAGA DEMAND FOR INDEPENDENCE, THE SIKH DISSATISFACTION OVER LAST YEAR'S PUNJAB SETTLEMENT, AND A BOUNDARY QUARREL BETWEEN MYSORE AND MAHARASHTRA STATES. IN BIG CITIES, COMMUNISTS AND THEIR ALLIES HAVE ORGANISED GENERAL STRIKES IN PROTEST AGAINST HIGH PRICES AND FOOD SHORTAGE, WHILE HINDU EXTREMIST GROUPS ARE CAMPAIGNING TO STOP SLAUGHTER OF COWS, WHICH THEY CONSIDER SACRED.
