There was a political conference of Uttarakhandi elites in Shrinagar Garhwal on 5th and 6th May 1938. Pratap Singh Negi was the president of the political conference. The Conference organizers invited Nehru, Vijay Lakshmi Pundit and Hathi Singh for attending the conference. Shridev Suman too attended the conference.  Suman was a literature creator and not a political activist on that time.  The conference decided his future course of actions in his life. The conference was a turning point in the life of Shridev and Tehri Garhwal. Suman put a resolution about the pain of people in the princely state of Tehri. The Conference passed the resolution unanimously.     Suman explained the pain and bad administration in princely state of Tehri to Nehru and Vijay Lakshmi.  Nehru announced the Tehri administration as the cruellest administration. By the speech of Suman, the Congressmen of British Garhwal came to know in details about the pain of Tehri citizens.    Suman too took a vow to change the situation (2) .
