IIAKIUSO N NEW DELHI i/ll—A trio of Communists In n North Indian state has Just shown everyone from Prime Minister Nehru down how a minority can create a political uproar. They dlrorted a quietly growing Communist rump government less than 100 miles from the national capital. It embraced 40.000 villagers before It wns nipped and disrupted all parliamentary activities in the state. Activities of the Red threesome finally forced Nehru's government to dissolve Ihe provincial ministry and proclaim central government rule over this strategic frontier area. It happened in the Patiala and East Punjab states Union—popularly called "Pepsu" for short—a collection of eight former princely states merged into an uneasy unity after India won independence. Nehru's Congress party won only 20 scats in the CO-mcmber Legislature in the Pepsu elections, 3ut as the largest single party, the Congress formed a ministry. After one month the Cabinet fell •uid a collection of feuding opposition elements combined to form a lew "United Front" Cabinet which leld a shaky grip on power. The three-member Communist >loc in the Legislature stayed out of the "United Front" regime, but cept a balance-of-power grip on he six-man Cabinet. "Two of the ministers were definitely fellow travelers, and two others were unwilling to antagonize * the Communists, since the ministry's precarious hold on power could not survive the active opposition of even three Communists," Home Minister K. N. Katju said In an Interview. "So they (the Communists) were left free to do as they liked, undisturbed by the law." Katju said Communist party units had taken control of village tribunals in more than 90 villages. Normally the village tribunals handle petty cases only. In the 90 villages, however, the five-man boards were trying murder cases and other serious offenses. They were stopping landlords from collecting rent from peasants, and even collecting the taxes and fines themselves. The Communists did not amass much money through their taxes and fines. Katju said, because they did not have a long; enough period undisturbed. It will take months before the new central government regime in Pepsu can completely regain control of the administrative machinery in the 90 villages, Katju declared. Presidential rule will continue until new general elections can be held.
