After the departure of Lord Curzon, who was the Viceroy of India during the British rule, around 1925, a large section of those who loudly raised the demand for independence emerged in the whole of India. Bipin Chandra Pal in Bengal, Bal Gangadhar Tilak in Maharashtra and Lala Lajpat Rai in Punjab were leading it. Later on, they came to be known as ‘Garam Dal’.

Together they campaigned to increase the use of indigenous goods and boycott foreign goods, especially foreign clothes in India. The success of the campaign can be gauged from the fact that when Lieutenant Governor of East Bengal, Lancelot Hare, expressed his desire to buy cloth made in Manchester in Barisal, he was told that for this he should contact Ashwani Kumar Dutta, a nationalist leader in East Bengal. Permission has to be taken.

When chanting of ‘Bande Mataram’ in public was banned in Bengal, it was strongly opposed in Punjab. Lala Lajpat Rai was leading it.

In the coming days, Bengal, Maharashtra and Punjab became strongholds of opposition to the British and their leaders Bipin Chandra Pal, Bal Gangadhar Tilak and Lala Lajpat Rai were given the title of ‘Lal-Bal-Pal’.
