    Background: An estimated 50-thousand people marched through the streets of Delhi yesterday (31 July) in protest against the Indo-Pakistan peace agreement reached at a summit conference in Simla last month. The march was organised by the Hindu nationalist party, the Jan Sangh, which described the agreement as a sellout under pressure from the Big Powers. Supporters of the Socialist Party and other parties joined the demonstration.

    The protesters marched three miles (5 kms) to an area near Parliament House where they listened to speeches from party leaders including the Jan Sangh president, Mr Atal Behari Vajpayee.

    The demonstration coincided with the opening of a session of the Indian Parliament at which the peace agreement reached in Simla was discussed. There, too, Jan Sangh members and trying to drown out the Indian Foreign Minister, Mr Swaran Singh, as he reported to Parliament on the treaty.
