    TRANSCRIPT: SEQ. 31: Interviewer. Mr Shastri, in your new job as Minister without portfolio, what exactly are going to be your responsibilities?



    Shastri. Well, it is not absolutely clear to me yet, however it seems that all papers concerning the different departments with which the Prime Minister has to deal will come to me and I may have to dispose of them. One is the General Affairs Ministry, the other is they had to make an economic commission of which the Prime Minister is chairman and the third is the cabinet secretariat and the fourth, the planning commission.



    Interviewer. In your many years as a member of the cabinet what have been in your basic political principles.



    Shastri. Politically I have always been in the congress and with the Congress. I must say the biggest impact on me was the leadership of Gandhi. Later on in fact, at the same time, the Prime Minister, I considered him to he of the architects of our country before our freedom and after it also. A man of high and noble character he also did create a great impression on me. His quality has been to take every action of our people with him. In the Congress, the Prime Minister was the cementing force. I think the future of India will be bright only if we adopt the same policy and techniques as that of the Prime Minister.



    Interviewer. Do you think that democracy can in fact survive after Mr Nehru leaves political scene.



    Shastri. I don't think in terms of the Prime Minister being our of the political scene, but I have no doubt that democracy will work and will succeed in our country whatever may be the situation.



    Interviewer. Many people says that you will succeed Mr. Nehru as Prime Minister, what is your reaction to these suggestions.



    Shastri. Well, I just keep quiet about these things. I've never expressed any view nor do I propose to say anything on that point.
