1.Why do you think our national movement supported the idea that all adults have a right to vote?
Answer:- Under colonial rule, the people had lived in fear of the British govt. & did not agree with many of the decisions that they took.
→ But they faced great danger if they tried to criticised these decisions. → The freedom movement changed this situation & the nationalists began to openly criticise the British govt & make demands.
→ They demanded that there be elected members in the legislature with a right to discuss the budget & ask questions.
That is why nationalist movement supported the idea of universal adult franchise, so that the people can take part in the decision making of the country.
