Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi, flanked by commandos, wearing a bulletproof vest and speaking from bulletproof podiums, made three campaign appearances in Punjab state, stronghold of Sikh extremists who have slain some of his political allies. Gandhi urged citizens to “fight terrorism with your votes” in state elections Sept. 25. More than 900 candidates are running for 115 state assembly seats in Punjab and for 13 seats in the national Parliament.
