Vinoba to walk to Assam

Indore, Sept. 29 : Acharya Vinoba Bhave will start tomorrow on a 1,500-mile journey on foot to Assam.

The Acharya is undertaking this strenuous journey for creating an atmosphere of mutual trust in Assam, which was recently the scene of linguistic riots, at the instance of the Prime Minister, Mr Nehru, and persistent requests from Assam and Bengal.

Addressing a prayer meeting at the Holkar College ground this evening, the Acharya said he had received a letter from Prime Minister Nehru about four days ago requesting him to visit Assam.
