The Outer Voice - If there was one man among the 400 millions who was genuinely and sincerely anxious for a settlement, it was Mr. Gandhi. Sir Tej Bahadur Sapru - Vikram Verma in Dawn, India, 1944.
The liberal leader Tej Bahadur Sapru played an important role as a mediator between the Congress and the Muslim League. The Conciliation Committee over which he presided won the cooperation of Gandhi but was spurned by Jinnah and the leader of the depressed classes, Bhim Rao Ambedkar. The Committee envisaged an Indian Union with a Parliament elected on the basis of joint electorates. It totally opposed Pakistan.
