Best Answer

1. firstly the Simon commission, which had no Indian members, was sent to investigate India's constitutional problems and make recommendations to the government on the future constitution of India, it provoked Indians as it had no Indian member. Indians felt this embarrassing and so boycotted the Simon commission.

2. Muslims clearly demanded sindh to be separated from Bombay in the Delhi proposals whereas British put down that demand of Muslims and thus enraged the Muslims who then stood for the opposition

3.. separate electorates and federal system of government was introduced, this made the congress go mad who were against this system. and so they opposed Simon commission.
