COMMENTS OF CHURCHILL ON
“ …power will go to the hands of rascals, rogues, freebooters ; all Indian leaders will be of low calibre and men of straw. They will have sweet tongues and silly hearts. They will fight among themselves for power and India will be lost in political squabbles. A day would come, when even air and water… would be taxed in India…”
--- Speech given by Winston Churchill in the British
parliament in June, 1947.
