BIRTH OF CONGRESS

[an error occurred while processing this directive]
This conference was to be held annually and the Governor of the province was to preside over it.

But the then Viceroy, whom he consulted, said, "Since the people will not voice their grievances openly before the Governors, choose some non-official to preside." Hume agreed.

He therefore convened the first confere- nce of Indian leaders to meet in the last week of December 1885 at Poona.

Hume went to England and talked to friends of India there to help him in his efforts.

Arrangements for the conference were made by the Sarvajanik Sabha of Poona. Delegates were to come there at their own expense but food and lodging charges would be borne by the Sabha.

As the day of the conference drew near, there was an outbreak of cholera at Poona. So the organisers changed the venue of the conference to Bombay and the conference met at the Gokuldas Tejpal Sanskrit College a day later.
