Question and answer
Explain the major aims of British raj policy in India
The Raj began in 1858, when the rule of the British East India Company was transferred to the Crown, and lasted until 1947, when the British Indian Empire was partitioned into two sovereign states, India and the Pakistan. [ The three main decision makers were the Secretary of State for India, a member of the British cabinet, based at India Office in London. He was was formally advised by the Council of India. The chief official in India was the Viceroy, based in Calcutta and after 1912 in Delhi. He was supported by about 1000 senior members of the Indian Civil Service, who effectively rules
in local areas. The third triumvir (after 1895) was the commander in chief of the Indian Army, which was largely officered by Britons. The three men generally cooperated, although the explosive confrontation between Viceroy Curzon and General Kitchener led to Curzon's resignation in 1905. Since the British army often rotated its professionals in India, there built up in Britain itself a large base of men and their families with experience or connections in India. They comprised a vocal lobby in Britain on behalf of the Raj, and were a power in the Conservative Party; a key spokesman was Winston Churchill. ]

Weegy: On 6 June 1936, Snr.Jose Maria Gil Robles, Leader of the Spanish Catholic Party, the CEDA, rose to address the Spanish Cortez or parliament. [ He laid bare the parlous state of Spain when he noted that during the four months the left wing Popular Front government had been in power 160 churches had been burned to the ground and there had been 269 mainly political murders and 1287 assaults. No less than 69 political centres had been wrecked and 10 newspaper offices had been sacked. There had been 113 general strikes and 228 partial strikes. ‘Let us not deceive ourselves!’ said Gil Robles, ‘A country can live under a Monarchy or a Republic, with a parliamentary or a presidential system, under Communism or Fascism! But it cannot live in anarchy. Now, alas, Spain is in anarchy. And we are today present at the funeral service of democracy!’ This stinging criticism of the government was taken up by the Monarchist leader, Snr.Jose Calvo Sotelo, who claimed that the disorder in Spain was due to the flawed Constitution of 1931. ‘Against this sterile State,’ he proclaimed, ‘I am proposing the integrated State, which will bring economic justice, and which will say with due authority: “no more strikes, no more lock-outs, no more usury, no more capitalist abuses, no more starvation wages, no more political salaries gained by happy accident, no more anarchic liberty, no more criminal conspiracies against full production,” The national production will be for the benefit of all classes, all parties, all interests. This State many may call Fascist; if this indeed be the Fascist State, then I, who believe in it, proudly declare myself a Fascist!” Reports of this debate reached every corner of Spain but Calvo Sotelo’s words were widely misconstrued, as was his call to the Spanish armed forced to be prepared to rise to the defense of Spain against anarchy. On Monday, 13 July, Jose Calvo Sotelo was murdered by members of the Assault Guard, Spain’s ... (More)
