(A) Acharya Narendra Dev
(B) Govind Ballabh Pant
(C) Chandrabhanu Gupta
(D) Motilal Nehru

Correct Answer : Govind Ballabh Pant
Question Asked : UPPCS (Pre) 2014
Explanation : Yogesh Chandra Chatterjee was one of the founder members of Hindustan Republican Association. He was sentenced to life imprisonment in Kakori Case. He wrote in his book ‘In search of Freedom’ that Pandit Motilal Nehru under Leadership of Govind Ballabh Pant formed the Kakori Case Defence Committee. In an article of Shankar Narayan Rao at PIB website, it is mentioned that in this case President of the defence committee was Pandit Motilal Nehru. We at this moment considering Shri Chatterji’s book as a primary source consider option (B) as the correct answer. Initially, UPPSC considered option (D) as the correct option but later on a corrected answer sheet it also showed (B) as the correct answer.
