    B)  He pleaded for elections instead of nominations

    C)  He was opposed to Gandhiji

    D)  He favoured an aggressive policy which was opposed by the Congress leaders.

    Correct Answer: D

    Solution :

    [d] For the 1939 elections of the President of Congress, Subhash announced his candidature knowing that he would be opposed. By this time, Nehru was on a long holiday in Europe. When he returned in 1938, Gandhi suggested him to announce his name as a candidate. But he declined and suggested the name of Maulana Azad. But Maulana Azad withdrew his name and then new name came up was of Dr. Pattabhi Sitaramayya, an Andhra leader. But Subhash was not sure of his win. The result was declared on January 29, 1939 and Subhash secured 1580 Votes. Sitaramaya got 1377 votes, thus Subhash winning by a narrow but clear margin. Gandhi said that Bose was president in his own right. He should form his own working committee and run the congress. Gandhi in a characteristic way had declared a "personal" war against Bose. Actually, Gandhi meticulously started planning to destroy Subhash, who was now the most serious challenge to his ideology and superiority.
