Enquiries Elections and Economic

THE coming assembly elections have certainly quickened the political pulse of the country. And this is not in reference to the open exchanges between the Janata party president Chandrase- khar and cabinet minister Raj Narain or to JP's call to the Janata rebels to withdraw when he simultaneously extends his support to a non-party candidate. These are matters with many repercussions on the present and the future. I am referring to the apparently co-ordinated moves now launched to get the investigation of Indira Gandhi and her son under way. The enquiries are going' to uncover a great deal of the sordid history of recent times. No one can refuse to be cross-examined, and there will be lawyers galore to find the tell-tale openings, As the gangsters who hied to manipulate the power levers unburden themselves of their personal guilt, they will have to pass comment on the veracity of the statements being made, For once, Indira Gandhi will have to keep anchored firmly to a single version of the events which shattered years of achievement. yuite a job for her. Small wonder that Sanjay Gandhi is asking for anticipatory bail. Methinks, there will be a queue or applicants very soon for this kind of bail.
