A coordination committee of detainees during Emergency proposes direct action to secure benefits from the government. A meeting of the association here observed that the statement of Chief Minister V.S. Achuthanandan that no proposal to provide benefits to the victims of Emergency was before the government was regrettable. It urged that Emergency should be included as a topic of study in the school syllabus as done by CBSE. The Sasthamangalam camp, where Varkala Vijayan was killed during emergency, should be turned into a memorial. — Special Correspondent
