EMS called to Delhi for remarks

The Home Minister, Mr. Y.B. Chavan, has asked the Kerala Chief Minister, Mr. E.M.S. Nambudiripad, to come to Delhi to discuss the reported statement issued by the latter jointly with Mr. A.K. Gopalan, Marxist Communist leader, declaring their intention to “break the Constitution from within.” This was disclosed by Mr. V.C. Shukla, Minister of State for Home, while replying to a call-attention motion tabled by a Congress member, Mr. A.G. Kulkarni, in the Rajya Sabha to-day [July 22]. Mr. Shukla turned down a suggestion for banning the Communist Party, saying that the Government had no power to do so. The discussion on the motion was marked by sharp exchanges between the Marxist Communist members on the one side and Swatantra and Congress members on the other. The Marxist Communist members made a futile bid to have the discussion put off. At one stage, the interruption and wordy duel, reached such a pitch that the Deputy Chairman, Mrs. Violet Alva, said that she would put off the discussion. But the Swatantra leader, Mr. Dahyabhai Patel, was quick to tell the Chair that was exactly what the Communists wanted and pleaded that the Chair should not oblige them.
