NotesNews: Nov 22: India's Constituent Assembly, which is due to hold its first meeting on December 9, was attacked by both Hindus and Moslems today. Mr Jinnah, the Moslem league leader, said he would boycott the Assembly and described it as "one more blunder." "It is quite obvious," he said, "that the Viceroy is blind to the present serious situation and is playing into the hands of Congress." At the same time Congress leader, Pandit Nehru, was telling his followers that the only good thing about the Assembly was that "Britain will not be directly represented on it" [Chronicle of the 20th century]
