This chapter describes Gokhale’s disappointment with the ‘reformed’ Congress and the ongoing conflicts between the Moderates and the Extremists. The Lahore Congress (December 1909) revealed the tensions between the government and the Congress, the Hindus and the Muslims, and the Moderates and the Extremists. The reforms had lost their glamour even before they had actually been launched. There was hardly any prospect of the constitutional issue being reopened for at least a decade. Meanwhile, something had to be done to contain the racial and religious bitterness, and to arrest the demoralization and dissension within the Congress.
