The people of India agitated against the arrival of the Simon Commission because it consisted of all British members and did not include any Indian member. The absence of Indian representation in the commission was seen as a disregard for the aspirations and demands of the Indian people for self-governance and responsible government. The Indian National Congress and various other political organizations and individuals protested against the Simon Commission and demanded Indian representation in any future constitutional review or reform processes.
