By the summer of 1904, Indian nationalists had despaired of a favourable response to their demands from Lord Curzon or the Conservative Government in Whitehall. Things looked rather bleak, but, fortunately, as the year wore on, British politics took a hopeful turn with the possibility of a general election and a Liberal victory. In response, the Bombay Congress unanimously decided to depute Congress representatives to bring the claims of India ‘before the electors, before the Parliamentary candidates, and before the political leaders’ in England. These delegates included Surendranath Banerjea, M.A. Jinnah, Lajpat Rai, and Gokhale. This chapter chronicles Gokhale’s trip to England and his speeches delivered there.

Keywords:   Lord Curzon, Conservative Government, Whitehall, British politics, Bombay Congress, Surendranath Banerjea, M.A. Jinnah, Lajpat Rai, Gokhale
