Reasons for launching Civil Disobedience Movement by the Congress:
- The British Government in India had deprived the Indian people of their freedom. It had based itself on the exploitation of masses.
- The British Government had ruined India economically, politically culturally and spiritually.
- The people of India believed it to be a crime against man and god to submit any longer to a rule that has caused irreparable harm to Indian economy and its social fabric.
- The Congress, therefore, declared the attainment of complete independence as its aim in the Congress Session held at Lahore and decided to launch Civil Disobedience Movement under the leadership of Gandhiji.
