Why was the Simon Commission boycotted?

Answer :

The Simon Commission was appointed in the year 1929. The Simon Commission was constituted under Sir John Simon.

2. However, they did not have a single Indian member, which was a huge problem.


3. When the Simon Commission arrived in India in 1928, it was greeted with the slogan,


‘Simon, Go Back’.


Hence, the Simon Commission was boycotted as it did not have any Indian representation.
