By the middle of 1940, the war had brought disaster for the allies, as France fell in June 1940, the British Government made renewed appeals for co-operations to all parties in India. In the middle of 1941, the war situation had become more serious for the allies, the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor and America was involved in the war, the initial success of the Japanese armies in South East Asia brought the war to India’s doorstep. The British under the leadership of the die-hard imperialist Churchill were most reluctant to make any firm commitment regarding Indian independence.
