Why were different social groups participant in the "Civil Disobedience Movement"? Explain the examples.
The business classes wanted protection against imports of foreign goods and a rupee-sterling foreign exchange ratio that would discourage imports.
The poorer peasantry found it difficult to pay their rent. They wanted the unpaid rent to the landlord to be remitted.
Rich peasants like the patidars of Gujarat and the Jats of Uttar Pradesh were active in the movement as they were very hard hit by the trade depression and failling prices.
