Nehru Report

The secretary of State for India Lord Birkenhed challenged the Indians whether they could prepare a constitution agreeable to all.

The challenge was accepted and the All Parties Conference held its meeting at Bombay on May 19, 1928.

The Conference appointed an eight members commission under the chairmanship of Motilal Nehru.

The Committee recommended that

a) Dominion Status for India.

b) Establishment of a federation on the principles of linguistic states.

c) Reservation of seats for minorities in legislative bodies for ten years.

d) India should be secular state.

e) Responsibility of the executive to the Legislature.

The All Parties Conference met in August 1928 in Lucknow under the presidentship of Dr. Ansari and ratified the draft constitution.

Mahatma Gandhi requested the British Government to accept the Nehru`s Report, otherwise Congress would launch a Civil Disobedience Movement.
