Civil Disobendience Movement (1930-34)

Salt is the basic requirement for every person. The British government took the monopoly of making salt and passed a law, banning manufacture of salt. On March 12, 1930, Mahatma Gandhi began his epic Dandi March from Sabarmati Ashram to Dandi. That is how the march came to be known as Dandi March. He was acommpained by 78 supporters. They made salt from sea water and broke the law.
      Salt Satyagraha was an open challenge to the British and the Civil Disobedience spread all over the country. It became the second mass movement as schools, colleges and courts were boycotted, foreign goods were burnt; peasants refused to pay taxes and shops were picketed. The movement was led by Abdul Gaffar Khan in North-West Frontier Province. He was popularly known as Frontier Gandhi.
