Chairman of the Constituent Assembly in India
The purpose of electing the Indian Constituent Assembly was to create the nation's constitution. The proposal for a Constituent Assembly is given to M N Roy, a proponent of radical democracy and a leader of the Communist movement in India. It was his idea in December 1934.
It was a unicameral body with 389 elected members; after India and Pakistan were officially partitioned, that number fell to 299 members. The Assembly convened for the first time on December 9 in New Delhi, and it reconvened for the final time on January 24, 1950.
The Constituent Assembly, a collection of elected authorities, drafted and approved the constitution. Dr Sachchidananda Sinha served as the first chairman of the Constituent Assembly. Later, the group chose Dr Rajendra Prasad and HC Mookherjee as its president and vice president, respectively.
