Correct Answer:- C ( V. Bhashyam Iyengar)
Historians of thc 'Cambridge school' have been trying in recent years to present the emergence of Extremist dissent as basically a set of factional quarreIs between 'ins' and 'outs' for the control of the Congress. Certainly there was no lack of factionaIism in Congress circles during thc 1890s. Factionalism was particularly acute in the Punjab, with three groups within the Lahore Brahmo Samaj, a major
split within the Aryas, and a conflict between Lala Harkishan
LaI and Lala Lajpat Rai. Washbrook has tried to analyse Madras
politics in terms of a triangular conflict between the V. Bhashyam Iyengar and S. Subramania Iyer in the 1880s,
followed by V. Krishnaswami Iyer-the 'in' group, according to
him, its Iess succcssful 'Egmore' rivals. also Madras city based
(C. Sankaran Nair, Kasturi Ranga Iyengar), and mofussil 'outs'
Iike T. Prakasam and Krishna Rao in coastal Andhra or Chid-
ambaram Pillai in Tuticorin who allied with some 'Egmore'
politicians to constitute Madras Extremism after 1905.
