George In Court
Twenty two of the 25 accused in the Baroda dynamite case, including George Fernandes, chairman of the Socialist Party, and Viren Shah, an old Congress member of the Rajya Sabha, now in detention under the MISA, were produced before the chief metropolitan magistrate, Delhi, Mohammed Shamim. Sushil Chander Bhatnagar, who was on bail, was summoned to appear before the court. Ladli Mohan Nigam and Atul Patel have been absconding. All the accused present in the court were furnished with the chargesheet and other documents being relied upon by the CBI, which has launched prosecution against them on charges of criminal conspiracy under section 120 (B), and section 121 (A) IPC and various sections of the Explosives Act. Counsel for the accused, George Fernandes and Viren Shah, moved separate petitions praying that they should not be produced before the court in handcuffs. The CBI had on September 23, 1976, filed a chargesheet against the 25 persons accusing them of hatching a criminal conspiracy to owerawe the government by means of criminal force or show of criminal force.

Recent talks between the CPI and the Marxists failed to create a ground for dialogue for any significant change in the relations between the two parties. CPI leader and Kerala Chief Minister C. Achutha Menon was certain that the parties will clash in the assembly elections in his state. He did not state the reasons for the failure of the talks but indicated that they were ill-conceived. Menon said the coalition, which includes the CPI and the Congress, will return to power.
