Is It Me? - Mr. Chakravarti Rajagopalachari says that he has the right to interpret Mahatmaji. - Shankar, India, 1942.

At the session of the All-India Congress Committee in Allahabad in April 1942, Chakravarti Rajagopalachari presented a resolution recommending acceptance of Pakistan in principle as the basis of settlement between the Congress and the Muslim League. The resolution said that "to sacrifice the chances of the formation of national government for the doubtful advantage of maintaining a controversy over the unity of India is the most unwise policy and that it has become necessary to choose the lesser evil." Rajagopalachari is shown painting a portrait of Gandhi, but the likeness that emerges is that of Jinnah.
