Visiting Indian Prime Minister Rajiv Gandhi appealed Sunday for greater pressure on South Africa to end apartheid and warned of an imminent bloodbath unless change comes rapidly.

Addressing a news conference at the end of a tour of four black-governed nations in southern Africa, Gandhi said he was talking about more than peripheral measures, such as lifting restrictions on the movements of blacks or the freeing of Nelson Mandela.

“Even though this would help, our aim is the total dismantling of apartheid,” he said.
