DMPQ: What was the lord Wavell plan? How it was taken by the different political entity? (history)

Lord Wavell plan was constituted to resolve the political deadlock of existing India but he abandon the proposal due to disagreement between leaders of muslim league and congress, and finally the proposals were dissolved  at the Shimla conference

Plan:

  • Formation of new executive council at the centre in which all the members except the viceroy and the Commander in Chief would be Indian.
  • All portfolios except defence were to be under the control of Indian members.
  • In the proposed executive council of 14 members, the muslim who constituted 25% of the population were given 6 seats. Plan also gave veto power to the British.

Over representation of muslims in the executive council and Jinnah assertion on the sole right to choose muslim member became the bone of contention and the plan dropped out.
