Clash with Curzon

Clash with Curzon

(p.177) 17 Clash with Curzon

B. R. Nanda

Oxford University Press

Gokhale’s election to the Bombay Council in 1899 marked the beginning of his political rehabilitation. Six years later, when he presided over the Benares session of the Indian National Congress, it can be said that he climbed the top rung of the political ladder. His rise to political eminence thus almost coincided with the term of Lord Curzon as the Viceroy of India. This chapter focuses on the conflict between Gokhale and Curzon. Given Curzon’s general antipathy to the educated classes and his hostility to their political aspirations, he was bound, sooner or later, to clash with them. The clash was precipitated by his plans for the reform of the universities.
