Why did the Cabinet Mission Plan reject the demand for Pakistan?
The Cabinet Mission Plan rejected the demand for Pakistan because:
(i) The partition as claimed by the Muslim League would not solve the communal problem.
(ii) A small Pakistan would not be viable if it is in two halves: One in the East the other in the West.
(iii) Partition would involve dislocation of communications network as well as division of armed forces and service personal along communal lines.
