  • Description

    THE CZECHOSLOVAK EMBASSY IN NEW DELHI, INDIA WAS INVADED YESTERDAY (MONDAY) BY DONKEYS CARRYING THE NAMES OF WARSAW PACT MILITARY CHIEFS. THE STRING OF DONKEYS -- WHICH ARE REGARDED IN INDIA AS COMPLETELY IDIOTIC AND CONTEMPTUOUS ANIMALS -- WAS HERDED TO THE FRONT OF THE EMBASSY BY MR M.L. SONDHI, A MEMBER OF PARLIAMENT, IN PROTEST AGAINST THE INTERVENTION IN CZECHOSLOVAKIA BY TROOPS FROM THE SOVIET UNION AND OTHER WARSAW PACT COUNTRIES.

    ABOUT 30 OF THE ANIMALS WERE PUSHED THROUGH THE EMBASSY GATES BEARING THE NAMES OF MILITARY CHIEFS INCLUDING MARSHAL ANDREI GRECHKO OF THE SOVIET UNION. MR SONDHI SAID THE INVASION BY THE SOVIET UNION AND ITS WARSAW PACT ALLIES WAS "SIMPLY LIKE THAT OF DONKEYS". THE DONKEYS WERE PUSHED INTO THE EMBASSY "JUST AS THE SOVIET AND ALLIED TROOPS WERE PUSHED INTO CZECHOSLOVAKIA BY THEIR CRUEL MASTERS", MR SONDHI SAID.
