United Provinces' Politics, 1936-1937: Formation of the Ministries and Start of Congress Government: Governors' Fortnightly Reports and Other Key Documents

 
Lionel Carter (Editor)
Synopsis This is the first volume in a series which provides the texts of the fortnightly reports sent by the Governors of the United Provinces to the Viceroy. Other key documents sent by the Governors or their Secretaries are also included. There are 151 items in total. The subject of this volume is the start of Ministerial Government in the U.P. Congress, which won a resounding victory in elections held early in 1937, did not immediately take office because of a dispute over the use of the Governor's special powers. Instead a minority ministry led by the Nawab of Chhatari was sworn in and held office for more than three months. This period is fully covered in the documents printed here. By July, Congress had decided to form a ministry under the leadership of Pandit G.B. Pant. The volume concludes by recording in detail the somewhat troubled first months of Congress rule in the U.P.
