    Background: NEW DELHI, INDIA

    About three hundred members of India's opposition National Democratic Alliance (NDA) marched on the house of President Giani Zail Singh on April 13, to protest what they called four years of misrule by the government of Indira Gandhi. They handed the President a list of charges and demanded the government's resignation. The demonstration was provoked by fighting between Sikhs and Hindus in the northern Punjab province, where most of India's 12 million Sikhs live. The Sikhs want greater autonomy; so far this year more than 130 people have died in violent clashes. The opposition party marchers told President Zail Singh, who is a Sikh, that Punjab had become a symbol of the "paralysis" gripping Indira Gandhi's government. Leading the protest were former Prime Minister Chowdhary Charan Singh, and former Foreign Minister A.B. Vajpayee. The march will be followed up by a protest movement that will continue throughout the current budget session of the Indian Parliament.
