    Background: Members of India's Youth Congress -- an offshoot of the country's ruling National Congress Party -- demonstrated outside the United States Ford Foundation in New Delhi on Monday. They claimed that the foundation and its subsidiary, the Asia Foundation, were used as "fronts' by America's Central Intelligence Agency. The demonstration, which was peaceful, is part of a growing anti-American feeling in India against continuing U.S. arms aid to the Pakistan Government. Police were present, but no serious violence was reported. A delegation of demonstrators handed a protest note to an official of the Foundation, suggesting it move to Peking.
