  • Description

    MORE THAN 5,000 INVITATIONS WERE ISSUED BY THE NEW DELHI EMBASSY OF THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA, TO A RECEPTION YESTERDAY MARKING THEIR NATIONAL DAY - BUT ONLY A HANDFUL OF INDIAN GUESTS TURNED UP.THE PARTY WAS TO CELEBRATE THE FOURTEENTH ANNIVERSARY OF THE PROCLAMATION OF THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC.

    PREVIOUSLY, THE INDIAN PRAJA SOCIALIST PARTY HAD THREATENED TO PUBLISH THE NAMES OF INDIANS GOING TO THE RECEPTION.

    POLICE CORDONED OFF A GROUP OF THE PARTY'S SUPPORTERS WHO TURNED UP OUTSIDE THE EMBASSY, TO PREVENT THEM FROM STOPPING ANYONE WHO WANTED TO GO TO THE CELEBRATION.

    THE RECEPTION WAS HOWEVER, ATTENDED BY MEMBERS OF THE DIPLOMATIC CORPS WHOSE GOVERNMENTS RECOGNISE THE GOVERNMENT OF THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA.
