What were the objectives of the Home Rule Movement?
The objectives of the Home Rule Movement were as follows:
- The primary objective of the Home Rule Movement was to achieve self-government within the British Empire through the use of constitutional means. That is, it aimed at the establishment of a government by Councils, whose members would be elected by the people of India.
- It was intended that such a Council should pass the country’s budget and the ministers should be made responsible to the legislatures.
- The Home Rule Movement sought to organise public opinion in favour of its main objective and the over-arching objective of gaining political independence for India in the long run.
