One of the most important factors that shaped Indian politics during the late 1920 was the global reprecussions of he Great Economic Dperession. As a result of the Depression, agricultural prices fell manifold and ultimately collapsed in 1930. As a result of this, agricultural goods demand fell and exports declined sharply. This directly affected the peasants' ability to pay revenue. As a result, by 1930s, the rural Indian heartland was in great turmoil. 

Secondly, the the Constitution of the Simon Commission and the lack of Indian representation in it resulted in widepsread protests in India. The continued indifference of the British government to the national aspirations of the Indians resulted in the radical leaders like Jawaharlal Nehru and Subhas Chandra Bose gaining an upperhand within the Congress. This prompted Congress to demand complete political independence from British rule and later resulted in the onset of the Civil Disobedience Movement.
