    A)  M. R. Jayakar

    B)  Tej Bahadur Sapru

    C)  V.S. Srinivasa Sastri

    D)  M.S. Aney

    Correct Answer: B

    Solution :

    [b] Sir Tej Bahadur Sapru, was a prominent leader of the pro-British Raj Liberal party in British-ruled India. Although initially a member of the Indian National Congress, Sapru left it to join the Liberal party of India after the Congress began advocating Swaraj (Self Rule) and supporting popular agitation and civil disobedience against British colonial rule. A constitutionalist, Sapru advocated for greater political rights and freedoms for Indians to be achieved through dialogue with British authorities and did not support Indian independence from the British Empire. Sapru mediated between Gandhi and the Viceroy Lord Irwin, helping to forge the Gandhi-Irwin Pact that ended the Salt Satyagraha. Sapru also mediated between Gandhi, Dr. Bhimrao Ramji Ambedkar and the British over the issue of separate electorates for India's "Untouchables", which was settled by the Poona Pact. Sapru was chosen as the representative of Indian Liberals at the Round Table Conferences (1931-33), which sought to deliberate plans over granting more autonomy to Indians. His efforts along with those of his contemporary M. R. Jayakar at the Round Table Conferences for bridging the differences between the British administration and Congress are well known.
