Reading Exercise 201

The year 1979 dawned with new challenges. The ambitions of charan singh, who wanted to become the prime minister of India, the ever-increasing influence of the RSS and the Jana sangh in the administration, the increasing dependence of the prime minister on that group, and the internal fractional quarrel among the socialist groups in the ruling clique had already destroyed the cohesion of the janata party. The only cementing force, which kept them formally together, was the lurking fear of the emergence of Indira Gandhi.
The attacks on congress leaders and workers went unabated. In Punjab, giani zail singh was brutally attacked; and in west Bengal, police beat up barkat and many other state congress leaders. In Bhubaneswar, indira’s Gandhi’s convoy was assaulted, as were important congress leaders like k.c lenka and b.m mohanty. Even ordinary workers of the party faced such attacks, but no eventuality was enough to daunt them, such was the level of their enthusiasm.
