RAMMANOHAR LOHIA

The Congress Socialist Party

The Satyagraha or Disobedience Movement launched by Gandhi was spreading throughout the country. Lohia plunged into the movement. The reward he got was imprisonment.

Just then, the younger members of the Congress Party began to feel that the elders were not moving fast enough. Some of those youngsters had been imprisoned in the Nasik Road Jail. They had great compassion for the poor, the peasantry and the working class. These youngsters were determined to strive for the cause of such people. So they formed a youth wing in the Congress and called it the Congress Socialist Party. Among the founders of this Party were such stalwarts as Jayaprakash Narayan, Ram Manohar Lohia, Yusuf Meherally, Achut Patwardhan, Ashok Mehta, Kamaladevi Chattopadhyaya and Acharya Narendra Deva. These people dreamt of building a nation for the toiling millions. In order to achieve this, they decided to put an end to the British rule.

Lohia became the editor of a periodical the "Congress Socialist'. With his western education, Lohia was very well versed in international affairs. The Congress established a new branch for external affairs. Lohia had to look after its administration. Lohia made it possible for the Congress to have contact with all the progressive thinkers of different nations of the world. He opened a separate cell in order to protect the interests of Indians abroad.
