Prime Minister Nehru, addressing a public meeting in Coimbatore on June 5, said that he welcomed the move for the formation of a new Opposition party as announced by Mr. C. Rajagopalachari in Madras. Mr. Nehru said: “Although I do not agree with the party’s views, I welcome it and I hope that the party would put before the people of the country definite programmes and definite policies so that you and I and all of us may be able to differentiate what they are and how far we can follow them.”
