The strategy of ‘Divide and Rule’
Lord Curzon is the right answer.
Lord Curzon was the Viceroy and Governor General of India from 1899 – 1905.
In his second and most controversial tenure, he partitioned Bengal in two halves named as, 1. West Bengal 2. East Bengal and Assam. Congress called this partition as ‘Divide and Rule’.
Lord Curzon was died on 20 March, 1925.
