5. And it must also recall its own anger against imperialism, that so many in

1. The PM also addressed other countries that are viewing the growing
 seriousness of the two-month long stand-o? with concern.
2. He spoke about India’s tradion of peace with bravery, indica ng that
 diploma c op ons would be exhausted before any ac on.
3. To his domes c audience, the address signi?ed the government’s
