If One Can Change, Why Not The Other - Ahmed in Pioneer, Lucknow, India, 1939.

January 1939 saw a quicker tempo in the movement for democratic rights in the princely States. The hub of the agitation was Rajkot, in Saurashtra. Gandhi described the struggle in the State as "frankly for a responsible government" and for "redeeming the promise" of its ruler in this connection. Gandhi accused the Thakore Saheb of Rajkot of "a cold-blooded breach of a solemn covenant" with his people. This breach had been committed, he added, at the instance of the British Resident in the State. The Pioneer, reflecting the view of the landed aristocracy, depicted Gandhi's actions as adopting the techniques and livery of Hitlerism in his drive to democratize the princely States.
