The people supported the Civil Disobedience Movement as it spread in different parts of the country due to the following reasons:
1. Due to the worldwide economic depression the agricultural prices began to fall, demands for agricultural goods fell and the export declined.
2. This resulted in a countryside turmoil because now it was difficult for the peasants to sell their harvest and pay the high revenue.
3. Against this situation of countryside turmoil the Tory government in Britain set up a commission named Simon Commission after the name of Sir John Simon to look into the constitutional system in India and suggest the changes needed. There were no Indian members in this commission.
