Stand Still Agreement In Hindi
On August 12, 1947, J&K sought to conclude a status quo agreement with India and Pakistan and declared: “The government of Jammu and Kashmir would like a standstill agreement with the Union of India and Pakistan on all matters that are the subject of agreements with the outgoing Anglo-Indian government.” Soon, the Nizam, under pressure from Majlis-e-Ittehadul Muslims (Ittehad), the Muslim nationalist party active in the state, withdrew from the agreement.  On the morning of October 27, Qasim Rizvi, the leader of Ittehad, organized a massive demonstration of several thousand activists to block the delegation`s departure. He convinced nizam that India, then linked to the defense of Kashmir, did not have sufficient resources to put pressure on Hyderabad. He said a much more favorable deal was possible for Hyderabad.  The Nizam then appointed a new delegation, dominated by members of the Executive Council who opposed the previous agreement.  Former Hyderabad bureaucrat Mohammed Hyder called the event the “October coup.” From then on, Qasim Rizvi began to lead the government in Hyderabad.  The state of Jammu and Kashmir, which joined both India and Pakistan, decided to remain independent. She proposed to sign status quo agreements with the two gentlemen. Pakistan immediately agreed, but India requested further discussions. The Nizam of Hyderabad, which had previously been granted a three-month extension to conclude new agreements with the Dominion of India, wrote to the Indian government on 18 September that it was ready to conclude an association agreement with India.
He said, however, that membership would cause unrest and bloodshed in the state.  On 11 Hyderabad sent a delegation to Delhi with a draft status quo agreement, described as “complex” by V. P. Menon, Secretary of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Minister of State Vallabhbhai Patel rejected any deal that would not fully cede defence and foreign policy to the Indian government. On the advice of Governor-General Louis Mountbatten, Menon prepared a new draft treaty that was sent back with the Hyderabad delegation. Nizam`s executive council discussed the agreement and approved it by six votes to three. Nizam expressed its agreement but delayed the signing of the agreement.  The new delegation made only minor changes to the old draft agreement.
 He established that all the administrative agreements and arrangements that then existed between the British Crown and Nizam would be maintained with the Indian government. . . .
