As a pragmatist, Jinnah – who suffers from tuberculosis and lung cancer indefinitely – accepted the cabinet`s mission proposal, as did the leaders of the Congress Party. The beginning of the summer of 1946 thus saw the beginning of hope for the prospects for India`s future, but this soon proved to be false when Nehru, at his first press conference as re-elected President of Congress, announced that no Constituent Assembly could be “linked” by a pre-established constitutional formula. Jinnah read Nehru`s remarks as a “total rejection” of the plan, which had to be accepted in its entirety to work. Jinnah then convened the League`s working committee, which withdrew its prior agreement on the Federation`s programme and asked the “Muslim nation” to take “direct action” in mid-August 1946. Thus, the bloodiest year of India`s civil war began since the mutiny almost a century earlier. The Hindu Muslim riots and assassinations, which began in Calcutta, sent deadly sparks of anger, incendiration and fear into every corner of the subcontinent, as all civilized restraint seemed to disappear. (3) Notwithstanding these provisions of this article, both governments limit the transfer of capital from India to the United Kingdom, which does not, from time to time, restrict the term “sterling territory” by the Exchange Control Regulations in force in the United Kingdom. After the Exchange Control Act came into force in the United Kingdom in 1947, the term “sterling zone” wherever it appears in this agreement was replaced by the term “planned zones” assigned to it from time to time in the Exchange Control Act of 1947. Lord Mountbatten (who served from March to August 1947) was sent to replace Wavell as viceroy, with Britain ready to transfer its power over India to a few “responsible” hands by June 1948. Shortly after reaching Delhi, where he met with the leaders of all parties and with his own officials, Mountbatten decided that the situation was too dangerous to wait, if only for this short period. Fearing a forced evacuation of British troops still stationed in India, Mountbatten decided to opt for a partition that would divide Punjab and Bengal, instead of risking further political negotiations as a civil war raged and a new mutiny of Indian troops was imminent. Among India`s leading leaders, Gandhi alone refused to reconcile with partition and asked Mountbatten to offer Jinnah the post of prime minister of a united Indian nation instead of a separate Muslim nation. But Nehru would not agree, nor would his most powerful deputy, Vallabhbhai Jhaverbhai Patel (1875-1950), being both tired of arguing with Jinnah and persevering in the task of leading an independent government of India.
2. In addition, Account 2 to Account 1 is paid the equivalent of all amounts paid after July 15, 1947 by Account 1: on June 4, 1947, Mountbatten held a press conference at which he addressed the issue of Special States, of which there were more than 563. Contractual relations between Great Britain and the Indian States ended and the permeability of the British crown was due to end on 15 August 1947. They would be free to join any of the new lords, contrary to popular belief, independence was never an option for the spring states under the Mountbatten plan.  iv) other transfers that can be agreed between the two governments.
