A member of the Indian Youth Congress shouts anti-government slogans while sitting near two donkeys with inscriptions Bangaru Laxman (BJP president) and George Fernandes (Defence Minister ) during a protest near parliament in New Delhi March 14, 2001. Four senior Indian Defence Ministry officials and army officers were suspended following the release of a news website's documentary, which implicated them in an alleged arms bribery web, the ministry said. The documentary, released on Tuesday, has already claimed the scalp of the leader of Prime Minister Atal Behari Vajpayee's Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP), which leads an unwieldy coalition that has been in power for 17 months.
