C. B. Gupta, leader of the Congress Party in Uttar Pradesh, has been given a mandate by the gov- ernor to form a government and is scheduled to sub- mit his list of ministers soon. The Uttar Pradesh Assembly is scheduled to meet on 17 March, at which time the new government must obtain a vote of con- fidence. As in Rajasthan, neither the Congress Party nor the opposition coalition won an absolute majority in the state legislature in the recent elections. Gupta and the opposition have been competing strenuously for the support of enough independents to ensure a majority. Gupta claims to have control of 217 seats of the total of 425. Anti- Congress disorders may break out in Uttar Pradesh, as the opposition appears unreconciled to a Congress government. A general work stoppage in the state capital, called on 13 March by the oppo- sition, was only partially successful, apparently be- cause man members of the o arrestedo 15 Mar 67 5 25X1 25X Approved For Relea - 09700230001-9 25X Approved For Rya Cuba: Fidel Castro reassumed the role of an embattled revolutionary in his speech on 13 March, Castro went to great lengths to rebut official Venezuelan charges that Cuba was responsible for the assassination last week of the brother of Vene- zuela's foreign ministero Castro denied any knowl- edge of who killed him, and blasted the orthodox Venezuelan Communists for blaming the shooting on the dissident Communist Armed Forces of National Liberation (FALN). He also defended his program for exporting revolution and attacked by implication the pro-Moscow Communist parties in Latin America, which. he again castigated for impeding the progress of armed revolution. The Cuban leader also implicitly attacked re- cent Soviet economic and diplomatic overtures to several "oligarchy governments" in Latin America. He has long nursed a grudge against Moscow for its efforts to improve state-to-state relationships with a number of Latin American governments, espe- cially Chile and Colombia. This resentment was apparent in his statement, "whoever helps those oligarchies where guerrillas are fighting will be helping to repress the revolutions " He went on to assert that "we will be a satellite of no one ideo- logically, internally, or externally. " Castro's speech was similar in tone to others he has given in the past when impatient with the lack of results from his external and internal pro- . grams, although the latter recently have been looking better--at least as regards the sugar har- vest. His main scapegoats this time were the orthodox Latin American Communists, particularly `the Venezuelan a"rt and Moscow's "errant" pali- " cies. 15 Mar 67 6 25X1 25X1 Approved For Relea - 9700230001-9 25X1 25X1 gpproved For Release 2002/10/22 :CIA-RDP79T00975A009700230001-9 Approved For Release 2002/10/22 :CIA-RDP79T00975A009700230001-9 Approved For Rse 2002/10/22 :CIA-RDP79T00975A0097002300~ NATIONAL INTELLIGENCE ESTIMATE The United States Intelligence Board on 13 March 1967 approved the fallowing national intelligence es- timate: Memorandum to Holders of NIE 11-14-66, "Ca- pabilities of the Soviet General Purpose Forces" 15 Mar 67 -25X1 25X1 Approved For Rele~se 2002/10/22 :CIA-RDP79T00975A009700230001I-9 25X Tep~S Relea~2002/10/22 : CIA-RDP79T00975A009~230001-9 Top Secret Approved For Release 2002/10/22 :CIA-RDP79T00975A009700230001-9
