Parliament Sobs At Announcements Nehru DeadApartment Building To Replace Old Library Site By CONRAD FINK NEW DELHI, India (AP)-Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, the aristocratic statesman who led India in the paths of neutralism and socialism since it became independent in 1947, died today after suffering his second stroke in less than five months. He was 74. Home Minister G. L. Nanda, a senior Cabinet member who has a reputation for getting things done, was sworn in as acting prime minister. Nanda was sworn in by President Sarvepalli Radhakrishnan. An elderly philosopher renowned in world academic circles, Radhakrishnan was charged under the constitution to take over the government on the death of the prime minister. But Nanda was quickly chosen to handle the administrative details. Nehru’s death was attributed to a heart attack and shock. “The prime minister is no more,” Steel Minister C. Sub-ramaniam told the sobbing Parliament. “Life is out. The light is out.” Nehru was stricken at 6:25 a.m. as he arose at his usual hour. He died at 2 p.m.—4:30 a m. EDT. seven hours and 35 minutes later A stroke on Jan. 7 had partially paralyzed his left side but he had recovered somewhat and in recent weeks had resumed his seat in Parliament. His only child, Mrs. Indira Gandhi, was with him when he died. A large team of doctors was in attendance. The U.S. Embassy offered its medical staff and equipment, but an embassy spokesman said the Indian government did not request assistance. Nehru’s two sisters, Mrs. Vijayalakshmi Pandit and Mrs. Krishna Hutheesingh, left Bombay by special plane for New Delhi. Mrs. Pandit is governor of Maharashtra State. Nehru’s death urgently raised a question that has plagued India for years — his successor. The strong-willed prime minis- ■ ter held the reins of power firm- ( See NEHRU.
