In Bengal, it had already spread deep into the hinterlands after 1905

As for MKG, he did spread the movement but with himself as the leader with only Him having the power to control the INC organization & its finances. We are still suffering bcoz of that
MKG started what @dikgaj rightly says Trusteeship politics.

Those funding INC would only finance those loyal to MKG via MKG's coterie.

Leaders were appointed from the top by Gandhi & his close circle, instead of letting leaders organically "coming up".
Not really. In UP, Punjab peasant movements were happening even before MKG arrived.

Ghadar party etc came up much before MKG arrived on the scene.

If anything MKG damaged the INC by appointing him as the "supreme leader". Think of Modi & 2014.
After 2013, BJP did expand massively & expanded its geographical and social base. But at the cost of what ?

Entire organization being run by 1 man & his coterie. Where loyalty to the supreme leader is all that matters. Leaders being imposed from above
@JajaborPathik partition & aftermath (the way it was done) is a classic example. 1 man appointed from the top overruling all grassroot level leaders & majority of Congressmen & botching up the entire process in an undemocratic manner. We r still paying the price.

1) Those RTing/liking this 👇 snapshot will surely Never recommend the entire book as it exposes many of the demi-gods of Indian RW & shows the "villains" in a positive way

Contains stuff that many RW "civilizational warriors" & "intellectual giants" tried to cover up
2) Those who as puzzled as to why Bengal has suddenly become "Dharmik" once again ; (many think Voting for Chaddis = dharmik) or

why challenge to the secular consensus & mullahdom is coming from Bengali "Bhadraloks" or why Saffron replaced Red

They should read the above book.
3) Indian RW (& its different variants) had little understanding of India's political history !

Which is why folks get puzzled & bewildered at Chaddis going full fledged anti-Hindu even with full majority and think that "Commie Bongs" have suddenly become "Virat Hindoos".
