Evolution of Indian Constitution . The idea of a Constituent Assembly to frame the Constitution of India was first mooted by the Communist leader MN Roy The Indian National Congress (INC) demanded a Constituent Assembly for the first time in 1935. The Britislh Government accepted the demand in its "August Offer" in 1940. The Cripps Mission in 1942 came to India with a draft proposal but the Muslim League didn't accept it as it wanted the division of India. Finally, the Cabinet Mission came out with a compromise formula which constituted the Constituent Assembly in November, 1946. . .

On December 11, 1946, Dr Rajendra Prasad was elected as Permanent President of the Constitution Assembly. The Muslim League boycotted the meeting and insisted on a separate state of Pakistan. On December 13, 1946, Jawaharlal Nehru moved the historic 'Objectives Resolution' in the Assembly. It pledged to make India an independent sovereign union of states. Sir B.N. Rao was appointed as the Constitutional Advisory to the Assembly. .
