Punjab Politics-1 January 1944-3 March 1947: Last Years of the Ministries

Lionel Carter (Author)
Synopsis This volume provides the texts of 126 fortnightly reports and other documents sent to the Viceroy by the Governors of the Punjab or their secretaries between January 1944 and early March 1947.  The years covered were crucial in the run-up to partition and the volume documents the growing strength of the Muslim League in the Punjab which was most clearly demonstrated by its resounding victory in the 1946 elections.  Corresponding activity on the part of Congress and the Sikhs is also recorded.  The volume details the reactions of the various communities and officials to the British constitutional initiatives made in July 1945, March-June 1946 and February 1947.  It concludes by throwing further light on the circumstances in which the coalition Ministry led by Sir Khizar Hyat Khan resigned in March 1947.
