Waiting For News 1945.

Wavell invited Indian leaders representing various shades of opinion to Simla in June 1945 for talks on forming a new Government. He inaugurated their talks with a brief address in which he said: "You must accept my leadership for the present. Until there is some agreed change in the Constitution, I am responsible to His Majesty's Government for the good government and welfare of India. I ask you to believe in me as a sincere friend of India." The talks broke down after three weeks of efforts to persuade Jinnah to give up his claim that his League was the sole representative of the Muslims. The leaders are here shown expectantly awaiting Wavell's announcement of his proposals.
