B. R. Nanda

Oxford University Press

The issue of constitutional reforms seemed to have receded to the background in the wake of the controversy generated by the deportation of Lajpat Rai and the Moderate–Extremist conflict. But it was soon to dominate the political scene again. This chapter describes the Madras Congress in December 1908. The inner tensions which had brought the confrontation between the Moderates and Extremists to a head a year earlier were absent. There seemed to be a conscious effort not to do anything that would antagonize the government, embarrass Morley, or cast doubts on the loyalty of the educated classes, while the reforms were on the anvil of the British Parliament. A resolution on swadeshi was passed, but ‘boycott’ was not even mentioned.
