THE CONGRESS PARTY’S ROLE IN THE SINDH ASSEMBLY

In pursuance of Section 289 of the Government of India Act 1935, Sindh was separated from the Mombai presidency by an Order in Council in 1936 and Sir Lancelot Graham was appointed first Governor on 1st April 1936.On 1st February 1937 elections for Sindh Legislative Assembly were held.The Assembly was to consist of 60 members as per the following allotment of the seats:


General Seats (18)
Muhammadan Seats (33)
Land Holders Seats (02)
European Seats (02)
Seats for representatives of Commerce etc (02)
Seats for representatives of Labour (01)
Seats for Women-General (01)
Seats for Muhammadan Women (01)
thus total seats 60.

Following was the result of members elected on behalf of various parties:

Congress (07)
United Party (17)
Sindh Muslim Political Party (05)
Azad Party (01)
independents (30)

On behalf of the Congress following 7 members were elected to the Assembly:

    1. Miss Jethi Sipahimalani ( Karachi Cum Hyderabad –Women Seat)
    2. Mr.R.K. Sidhwa ( Karachi city South)
    3. Dr.Popatlal Bhoopatkar ( Karachi City North)
    4. Seth Issardas Varandmal (Commerce)
    5. Prof.Ghanshyam Jethanand (Hyderabad-Suburbs & Taluka)
    6. Mr.Newandram Vishindas (Nawabshah North)
    7. Hasaram Pamnani (Sukkur Rular East)



The work of the Congress party generally reflected the political wisdom and capability of the Sindh Congress with the result that the party started growing in strength outside the House.When therefore the first speaker Mr.Bhojsing Pahlajani died,his seat was contested by the Congress from Sukkur constituency. Inspite of strong opposition launched by the Hindu Sabha Congress candidate Mr.C.T.Valecha returned with a thumping majority.

Soon after, owing to the death of Dewan Hiranand Khemchand,the Congress again resolved to contest the seat and put Dr.Choithram P.Gidwani who was returned uncontested.

For the first time the Congress decided to contest the Muslim seat which fell vacant on account of the death of Mr.Zain-ul-Abdin Khan Sundrani and Mr.Muhammad Amin Khoso was give Congress ticket who was dully elected.Thus within a short time the Congress was able to secure all the seats fallen vacant in the bye-elections.

Office Bearers of the Congress Party in Sindh Legislative Assembly were elected as under:
Mr.R.K.Sidhwa                                             (Leader)
Dr.Popatlal                                                    (Secretary)
Mr.Newandram Vishidas                               (Whip)
Prof.Ghanshyam Jethanand                            (Member)
Dr.Choithram P.Gidwani                               (Member)
Seth Issardas                                                (Member)
Jethi Sipahimalani                                          (Member)
Mr.C.T.Vaecha                                             (Member)

Owing to the unsettled conditions of acceptance or non-acceptance of the office in other provinces on an All India basis the Congress in Sindh Legislative Assembly resolved not to accept office or take part in the formation of the Ministry. Although very small in a House of 60 this party proved itself as the most vocal of all the parties. Almost all the members were found vigilant through out the proceedings of the Assembly. It was the Congress party which was responsible in defeating the first Ministry.

During the period April 1937 to August 1940 the performance of the party in the House remained as under:

QUESTIONS:
Number of questions put                                     4600
Supplementary questions put                               14850
Number of questions put by Congress members   3231

Number of answered questions( put by Congress members) :
R.K.Sidhwa                                                         681

Dr.Popatlal                                                          196
Newandram Vishindas                                         128
C.T.Vaecha                                                         98
