For many Conservatives in England, meetings and discussions seemed unacceptable. They considered it inappropriate for the viceroy, who was the representative of the British monarch, to receive their sworn enemy. The Gandhi-Irwin Pact is the name of a political agreement reached on March 5, 1931 by Mahatma Gandhi and Lord Irwin, then Viceroy of India. On January 25, 1931, Gandhi and all other members of the Congress Working Committee (CWC) were released unconditionally. The CWC allowed Gandhi to enter into discussions with Viceroy Lord Irwin. Subsequently, a pact was signed in Delhi, known as the Delhi Pact or Gandhi-Irwin.
