Attack From The East

Attack From The East

Then there is the attack which comes from the East. Mr. Nehru, in his own right a prodigious empiremaker, denies that he is a Communist. But what matters is that he has done infinitely more than an army of Palme Dutts could do to fulfill the prediction, "within the life span of this generation we will have won the struggle all along the world's colonial front." Does Mr. Nehru know that he is doing work which the Communists require to be done? Here is a curious fact. Moscow chose to pay the Indian Prime Minister a glowing tribute on the eve of the elections in Andhra, where his Congress Party was engaged in a fierce battle with the Communists, and in so doing ensured a Congress victory. Why did it do that? Because Nehru is so very much more important to the Kremlin than is any counterpart in Andhra of Rajani Palme Dutt.
