in favor of a Kashmir plebiscite The council had proved itself pitifully ineffective he said and had bowed to Indias defi ance He said the council must now act on Pakistans proposals It is no use telling us that India does not accept them he declaredit is for this organi zation and the world at large to make India accept them Bhutto suggested that the pro posed UN force be made up of Asian
