This Day That Age
Prime Minister Mr. Nehru said in New Delhi that, after the setting up of the Andhra State, Boundary Commissions would be appointed to determine the exact boundaries as between disputed border territories. Strongly deprecating demonstrations in Madras, such as stopping of trains, he wondered how boundaries could be decided by such methods.
He hoped such demonstrations would end, and warned that if they did not, severe action would be taken against those who interfered with essential services.
"It is exceedingly foolish for anyone to adopt these methods which bring discredit to our country," he declared, and went on, "a precise boundary can be determined only after due enquiry, and provision has been made for Border Commissions to go into all matters connected with disputes and recommend necessary border adjustments. No agitation is necessary for this. In any event, interference with the railway service or other public services does not make the slightest difference. It only reduces the whole question to absurdity. If interference with essential services continues, the general interest of the public demands that severe action should be taken to put an end to it."
