Correct Option is Congress and Muslim League

On February 20, 1947, the British Prime Minister Clement Atlee declared that the British rule in India would end by June 30, 1948; after which the power would be transferred to responsible Indian hands. This announcement was followed by the agitation by the Muslim League demanding partition of the country. Again on June 3, 1947, the British Government made it clear that any Constitution framed by the Constituent Assembly of India (formed in1946) cannot apply to those parts of the country which were unwilling to accept it.

The immediate effect was given to the plan by enacting the Indian Independence Act 1947.
