Brothers and sisters in India, today is the fateful day when the Congress Working Committee is meeting to consider Lord Wavell’s offer. From the reports sent out from India by various news agencies, it appears that most of the members of the Congress Woking Committee, are bent upon arriving at a compromise with the British Government on the basis of Lord Wavell’s offer; but neither from the constitutional nor from the moral point of view, it is fair or proper for the Working Committee to make such a momentous decision behind the back of the All India Congress Committee and the Congress. Constitutionally, the Working Committee has no power to do so. The acceptance of Lord Wavell’s offer will not only set at naught the fundamental principles and resolutions of the Congress, bat will drag the Indian people into whole-hearted participation in Britain’s imperialist war in the Far East.
