DANDI MARCH – ONLINE EVENT REPORT
As AICTE requests all the Universities/institutes situated along the route of Dandi Yatra to organize special events for the celebration of ‘Azadi Ka Amrut Mahotsav’ for Dandi Yatra, we made a awareness video on Dandi March and Importance of Voting.
Dandi March was an act of nonviolent civil disobedience in colonial India led by Mahatma Gandhi. The twenty four day march lasted from 12 March 1930 to 5 April 1930 as a direct action campaign of tax resistance and nonviolent protest against the British salt monopoly. The march spanned 240 miles (390 km), from Sabarmati Ashram to Dandi, in the state of Gujarat. More than 50,000 people were participated in the march.
This Dandi March played a major role in Freedom India Movement. The Satyagraha campaign of the 1930s also forced the British to recognise that their control of India depended entirely on the consent of the Indians – Salt Satyagraha was a significant step in the British losing that consent. Like this, our ancestors struggled a lot to give this democratic india to us. They all united for a cause and made a massive change.Let us all join to make a bigger change.We have the power to make a difference.
But we need to VOTE
