The Congress therefore strongly disapproves of Indian troops being made to fight for Great Britain and of the drain from India of men and material for the purpose of the War.

Under the leadership of Jawaharlal Nehru, who has held office as President for more than eighteen months, the Congress has grown by leaps and bounds.

On the Gaya Congress-MN Roy-15/02/1923

You have only to remember the choice remarks of St. Rajagopal in opposing the “Independence Resolution” to understand the real character of this crowd.
