Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 13, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta Wnlnxdny, 13, 197Z THE UTHM1DCE HWAIB India hopes to find for BOMBAY (CP) A nation- wide survey is under way in India to locate her "forgotten men who took an active part in the fight against British colonial rule. More than names are on federal and stale govern- ment lists. It is estimated that ultimately nearly liv- ing patriots will figure in them. The survey, under way spasmodically for some years, has been intensified as India completes the 25th year as an Independent nation. Hundreds of political work- ers belonging to the ruling Congress party of Prime Min- ister Indira Gandhi, the So- cialist party, the Communist party and other groups are taking part in the survey. In addition, the patriots them- selves have been writing to the government offering infor- mation about themselves. Officially, the men are known as freedom-fighters. The government has defined a freedom-fighter as a person who was imprisoned by the British for at least six months. The main purpose of the survey is to provide some fin ancial relief to the patriots many of whom are penniless There have been charges that once independence was achieved the were 0 r g o 11 e n, that they were shabbily treated by the new government and that some of :hcm were even "insulted" by the lucky few among them who managed to become cabi- net ministers and legislators. One of the last wishes of Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru, who died in 196-1, was that the men who helped to free India should he suitably Honored and well remem- bered His daughter, Indira Gan- dhi, has taken up the task. Recently, nearly free- dom-fighters were honored at a special function In New Delhi, the national capital. The government has drawn up a pension plan for the pa- triots. Each will receive a life pension of about a month. The patriots have not been impressed they a n t the pension to be increased and point to the increasing cost of living. An All-India Freedom-Fight- ers' Association formed at a recent convention in New Delhi. It has launched a cam- Milvain orders names struck from lawsuit CLABESHOLM (HNS) Soli-1 cilors for the Town of Clares- lolm were successful In having the names of individual coun- cillors and the mayor removed as defendants in an action against the Town of Claresholm started last June by owners of a shopping centre here. Chief Justice J. V. H. Mllvaln heard the application in Cal- gary recently and ordered that names of the mayor and six councillors be struck from the statement of claim which asks for in damages for "failure of the town" to put an opening for access in a median strip on.Highway 2, where it is located in front of the shop- ping centre. Council passed a resolution July 27, 1871, to have an open- ing made in the median but the provincial department of highways has refused to grant the necessary permission. A former Claresholm town cowcillor has begun legal ac- tion, in Alberta Supreme Court to determine if the mayor be- came disqualified from his po- sition because he voted on the motion. He operates a business n the shopping centre. James WannamaUcr, now ol Calgary, feels the mayor had pecuniary interest in the out- come of the resolution and was therefore not entitled to vote or speak on the matter. The supreme court will hear the application to have Mayor Patterson declared ineligible to retain his office. It rail be heard in Calgary Oct. 2. Mr. Wannamaker has movec to Calgary to take on a teaching post there and submitted his resignation as town councillor recently.

The AIFFA not only wants adequate pensions but other forms of government help such as loans and subsidized housing. Where is the money to be found at a time when the gov- ernment is faced with other pressing needs? The patriots' answer is simple. financial compen- sation from the British gov- ernment for its cruel exploita- tion of India for 150 the AIFFA says. He has asked Mrs. Gandhi to appoint a national commis- sion to inquire into and esti- mate the "colonial plunder" of India during British' rule and claim full reparations from the British government on the lines of the demands made on post-war Germany and Japan by the AlHes. The left-tt-ing political par- ties are likely to support the reparations demand mainly to embarrass the governmenl but so far it has not received any strong support from the Congress party. Some newspapers have crit icized the freedom-lighters for forming an association. The Bombav Times of India seid editorially: "It is no only pathetic but a little dis tasteful to find freedom-figM ers forming an all-India asso- ciation to secure pensions ant various ether concession-: in return for the 'sacrifices they made for their country.
