    The Quit India Movement of 1942 was a significant event in India's struggle for independence. It was led by Mahatma Gandhi, who played a crucial role in mobilizing the masses. The movement was characterized by its spontaneity, as it erupted in response to the British government's oppressive policies. Despite being a non-violent movement, it attracted people from all walks of life, including the labor class. Therefore, the statement that it did not attract the labor class in general is not true.
