In the light of events that occurred after the General Elections of 1937 and the subsequent formation of Indian ministries in various provinces, identify the statement which is incorrect:
[A] Congress was highly successful and Muslim League failed miserably. [B] Congress emerged as the largest party in NWFP. [C] Unionist Party and Krishak Praja Party formed Governments in Punjab and Bengal respectively. [D] Pirpur Report was prepared by Jinnah to highlight the atrocities and misrule of the Congress ministries
Correct Answer: D [Pirpur Report was prepared by Jinnah to highlight the atrocities and misrule of the Congress ministries]
To investigate Muslim grievances under Congress rule, the Muslim League formulated the “Pirpur Report” under the chairmanship of Raja Syed Muhammad Mehdi of Pirpur. Other reports concerning Muslim grievances in Congress run provinces were A. K. Fazl-ul-Haq’s “Muslim Sufferings Under Congress Rule”, and “The Sharif Report”.The allegation that Congress was representing Hindus only was voiced also by eminent British personalities.
