Today is a very important document in the history of India. In 1931, the second round table conference started in London today, in which Mahatma Gandhi as well as Congress leaders attended. However, this conference was a complete failure. Mahatma Gandhi and many Congress leaders were imprisoned as soon as they returned to India.
During this conference, Frank Morris had said about Gandhiji, “The sight of a half-naked fakir climbing up the stairs of St. James's Palace to talk to the British Prime Minister was in itself a unique and divine influence.”
Britain started efforts in 1930 for a constitutional government in India. Three round table conferences were held in this connection. However, it was the result of these conferences that the Government of India Act was passed in 1935. It accepted the people's demand for provincial autonomy.
