discuss why industrial working class in urban areas and poor peasant ry in rural areas not interested in participating in civil disobedience? who supported this section of society in 1930s ?

Dear Student,

 The following points may help you:

The industrial working class did not participate in the civil disobedience movement because:

a. The working class did not participate in large numbers, though some participated in adopting Gandhian strategy of boycotting foreign goods.

b. The working class stayed aloof as Congress became closer to industrialist class and sought to promote the interest of big business houses.

c. The Congress did not include working class's demand in its programme of struggle.

d. Working class was protesting against low wages, poor working conditions which was against the industrial class interests

Poor peasants in rural areas:

a. The poor peasants were unable to pay the rent for the land they cultivated for the landlords. They did not own the land, they were small tenants who cultivated lands taken on rent from the landlords. As the Depression continued, the
small tenants could not pay the rent, They wanted the unpaid rent to the landlord to be remitted.

b. The congress did not support no rent campaign of the poor peasants, since the congress thought raising the problems and issues of poor peasantry would upset the rich peasants and the landlords.

c. Since the issue of poor peasants failed to get any support from the Congress they were highly disappointed.

The working class and poor peasants were supported by the Communists and the Socialists
