ABOUT QUIT INDIA MOVEMENT

On August 7 of the same year the All-India Congress Committee met at Gowalia Tank maidan, Bombay, to approve the above resolution.

On the following day it considered the resolution. The resolution said India immediately wanted independence; a temporary Government consisting of Indian leaders would defend the country. It wouldn’t come in the way of the war effort. If this demand was not met, direct peaceful action would follow.

Twenty thousand people had gathered in the pandal. It was raining heavily outside. On the platform were seated the Members of the Working Committee and the special
invitees. Maulana Azad was President of the Congress in that year. Jawaharlal Nehru moved the resolution. Sardar Vallabhbhal Patel spoke on it. The resolution was thus approved on 8th of August. Then Mahatma Gandhi explained that immediate action would not be begun before fully explaining it to the British authorities and giving them time to consider it fully.
