Recommendation for the high profile post for Govind Das ji and his refusal:
was the year 1925, the tenure of Moropant Joshi as Home Member from the Central
Province was about end. At that time, Sir Montagu Burtler was the Governor of
the Province. Govind Das ji along with his wife and friend Dwarika Prasad Mishra
were at Pachmarhi. Sir Burtler was also there along with his wife.
Burtler invited Govind Dasís wife and children for tea. Since Govind Das ji
was in the movement, he did not participate in any such function or attended
parties or reciprocated such form of invitation. So Govind Dasís wife along
with her children went to the tea party hosted by the Burtler family. Whereby
Lady Burtler openly suggested that her family could recommend the name of Govind
Das ji for the post of Home Member since the tenure of Moropant Joshi as Home
Member was due for over. Though Govind Das ji refused the offer of Sir Montagu
Burtler but Tambe from the Berar region fell into his trap.
