MOTILAL NEHRU

Motilal's eyes were Opened

The government appointed a commission to enquire into this incident. The Congress
boycotted this commission. It appointed its own Inquiry Committee. Mahatma Gandh! Motilal Nehru, Chittranjan Das and some others were among its members. This committee conducted the inquiry and gave a two - volume report, which was published. The monstrous act of the government was severely condemned. After this great tragic incident, Motilal lost all faith in the Government.

The same year the All India Congress Session was held in Amritsar. Motilal was elected President of this session. He condemned outright the Jallianwala Bagh massacre and the policies of the government. He was not allowed to argue in the court in defence of two persons. They were innocent but yet they were sentenced to death. Motilal's faith in the
Government was shattered to pieces.

The Calcutta Congress Session passed a resolution to launch a non co-operation
movement. People were advised to boycott courts, government schools and legislative assemblies. The lawyers were to give up their profession and never co-operate with the Government. The Congress appealed to all people to wear Khadi and to encourage native products. Foreign things were to be boycotted.
