Correct Answer - Option 2 : Lord Lytton

The correct answer is ​Lord Lytton.

  • Lord Lytton was of imperialist thinking.

  • He has been considered the most reactionary Governor-General of British India.
  • Its purpose was to suppress the spirit of emerging Indian nationalism.
  • In order to strengthen the British power in India, he committed injustice, atrocities on the people here.
  • He was the viceroy of India from 1876 to 1880.
  • He is well known for his ruthlessness during the handling of domestic and foreign affairs in the time of the great famine of 1876-78 and the second Anglo African war.

  • Lord Ripon:- Lord Ripon's full name is George Frederick, Samuel Robinson.
    • Lord Ripon came as Viceroy of India in 1880 AD after Lord Lytton and served as Viceroy of India until 1884.
    • Like Gladstone, Ripon also had a liberal political outlook which made him a popular ruler.
  • Lord Meyo- Lord Mayo was the fourth Viceroy of India. He had traveled about twenty thousand miles during his three-year tenure in India.
    • Most of this journey was done on horseback only.
  • Lord Dufferin- Lord Dufferin had been the Governor-General of India.
    • He was the Viceroy and Governor-General of India.
    • In general, his reign was peaceful, but the Third Burma War (1885–1886 AD) took place during his tenure, which resulted in Northern Burma becoming part of the British Indian Empire.
