Morning Walk -- July 10, 1975, Chicago:

Prabhupāda: . . . takes my advice, then I can keep her on the post and she can do greatest service to India immediately. Immediately whole public will be her support.

Brahmānanda: What would be your advice to her?

Prabhupāda: My first step will be to capture all the hoarders and distribute the grains free. Immediately public will be obliged. There are immense food grains; they are simply hoarded. They are not selling without good price. This is going on. Immediately she can capture the public. And some of the hoarders should be hanged. . .

Brahmānanda: Yes.

Prabhupāda: . . .so that in future nobody will hoard. People are hungry. And she says she has got some program, garibi hatao, "Drive away the poverty." This is the point. If she can supply all consumer goods for the time being free to the poor, then immediately the whole population will be after her. And the hoarders should be exemplary punished. Shoot them, that's all. Then nobody will hoard. But to remain the dictator she requires spiritual knowledge. Otherwise it will be another disaster. If she wants to remain dictator, then she must be a spiritual man. She must become a Vaiṣṇavī.
