Which political parties grew out of a movement?
The Communist Party of India was founded in the 1920s to create an alternative mass movement to the existing Congress anti-imperialist movement. The communist movement grew out of economic causes and targeted the propertied classes whether British or Indian. The revolt was not against the colonial government and the ruling Congress Party as much as it was against the capitalist system. However, other communist parties viewed the Communist Party of India, the CPI, as too conservative and ineffective.
